Trade Essentials: Testing a New Approach to Apprenticeship Training - Final Report (2010)

Trade Essentials is a research project funded under the Pan-Canadian Innovations Initiative, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, in partnership with the Apprenticeship Section of the Prince Edward Island Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning. The project has focused on increasing participation in trades by providing a well-defined pathway and learning tools for each client to build on present skills and to access services needed to progress in a chosen trade.

The project produced guidebooks and other tools for 13 trades: automotive service technician; cabinetmaker; carpenter; construction electrician; cook; industrial electrician; machinist; metal fabricator; oil burner mechanic; plumber; refrigeration and air conditioning mechanic; steamfitter/pipefitter; and welder. These tools are available in both official languages for adaptation in any Canadian jurisdiction.

In this final report, the authors say that the results of the project will be of interest to many, including prior learning assessment practitioners, essential skills groups, apprenticeship organizations, trade schools and colleges, aboriginal groups, immigrant organizations, sector councils, career practitioners, policy makers, public schools, and employers.
