Igniting the Power Within (2011)

Project Report 2009 – 2011

Igniting the Power Within (IPW) is a training model, developed by and for Aboriginal people in Manitoba, that uses storytelling as a teaching method to help adults identify and document their skills as they seek employment. The PEI Literacy Alliance wanted to see if this model would also benefit non-Aboriginals in the Atlantic Provinces and invited the IPW facilitation team to present their model at workshops in Prince Edward Island.

This brief report outlines the material covered in the workshops; the project’s goals, both immediate and in the long term; and the lessons learned for future ventures.

The IPW facilitation team presented the material in four workshop sessions that focused on Essential Skills and prior learning and recognition; building a portfolio; examining life events to find evidence of Essential Skills; and celebrating your voice.
