Integrating Essential Skills into Apprenticeship Training: Guide for Aboriginal Stakeholders (2013)

This guide provides information on how to support the development of Essential Skills (ES) interventions in pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs aimed at Aboriginal learners.

The guide includes sections explaining how apprenticeship works and defining related terms; resources needed to establish a program; how to launch and market a program; evaluating the effectiveness of a program; and ensuring sustainability.

The authors point out that ES training improves the likelihood of completing an apprenticeship; reduces workplace accidents; increases productivity; and boosts confidence.

Information in the guide was provided by Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Agreement (ASETA) holders, funded by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). Under this strategy, Aboriginal agreement holders design and deliver employment programs and services best suited to the unique needs of their clients. The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum (CAF) facilitated the exchange of this information across the country.
