Connecting to Workplaces (2004)

Validating Outcomes Demonstrations with Employers

From October 2003 to June 2004, Literacy Network Northeast conducted a job creation partnership project in Northeastern Ontario entitled the Workforce Skills Training project. This project involved hiring twelve researchers in eight communities throughout Northeastern Ontario. These researchers worked in literacy and basic skills funded agencies gathering information on entry-level jobs in the local labour market and creating job profiles.

This document is a report of the project and outlines the results of the pilot process and pros and cons regarding employer contact. It also summarizes what employers said, what conclusions were drawn from the results, what principles were learned due to the methods used as well as challenges encountered. This report includes a comprehensive executive summary, in addition to background information, a description of the project, results, recommendations and conclusions.
