Elevate: Testing new delivery models to better meet the needs of adults (2013)

This document describes a project designed to examine and test the effectiveness of workforce training models that integrate both job-specific skills and Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) in the food-processing industry. The goal is to create a clearer sightline between those who want to work and the employer who needs workers with specific skill sets.

The first phase of the project will use an enhanced Job Requirement Approach (JRA) to investigate the relationship between traditional LES and entry-level job requirements, an approach that allows project leaders to try to determine the existing, new, and emerging skills that are required for current and future workers in the food-processing sector.

The second phase of the project will involve testing several industry-shared delivery models that incorporate entry-level job skills and traditional LES, as well as complex communication and problem solving in technology-rich environments (PS-TRE) through workforce demonstration projects across ten different sites in the food processing industry. This initiative will train about 250 job-seekers receiving income support.

Lastly, the project will examine the potential for replicating the delivery model as a lever for workforce development across other industry sectors.

Funded by Employment and Social Development Canada under the Adult Learning, Literacy and Essential Skills Program, the project is being carried out by Essential Skills Ontario.
