In-House Basic Training (2009)

Created in 1975, the Table des Responsables de l’Éducation des Adultes et de la Formation Professionnelle (TRÉAQFP) is an autonomous organization that encourages collaborative efforts to develop adult and vocational education in Quebec. Its members include all the French-language school boards in Québec, two English-language school boards, and two school boards with special status.

This document, published jointly by TRÉAQFP and the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL), looks at the changing face of basic training in Quebec workplaces. It has evolved from being a temporary measure for academic upgrading to being a lever for individual and social development.

Basic training should therefore enable workers to understand and use written information in daily activities at home, at work, and in the community; communicate effectively with their peers and the community; use information and communication technologies for training and recreation; and participate actively in the company's development.

The author explains the various types of training available for Quebec workplaces; the steps involved in establishing an in-house training program; and the funding arrangements that pay for training.

This document is part of a series of case studies on adult learning.
