The benefits of skills training – Part 3: Workplace skills development training with limited resources, with Sandi Howell, Workplace Education Manitoba [Video - 1:42] (2013)

This is the last of a series of three short videos about skills training, prepared by ABC Life Literacy Canada and featuring Sandi Howell, an adult educator and strategic advisor to Workplace Education Manitoba.

The key to developing successful workplace training programs is understanding which skills are required, she says. That means asking employees questions about the kinds of materials they read on the job; the documents they use; how they use numbers; and whether they communicate primarily face to face, over the phone, or via email.

Those questions are not often asked, but they are the key to improved job descriptions, more effective internal promotion, more successful recruitment, and better learning plans.

ABC Life Literacy Canada is a non-profit organization that encourages business, government, and communities to work together to support lifelong learning.
