Workforce Essential Skills: Putting literacy to work [Video - 7:46] (2010)

This video focuses on the benefits of Workforce Essential Skills (WES) training. It was prepared by PTP Adult Learning and Employment Programs, an organization whose mandate is to provide basic skills education, upgrading, job search, and related services to adults preparing for employment, training or further education.

WES training emphasizes skills related to tasks within the workplace, allowing learners to practise in the classroom things they will do when they move on to work. As well, it helps learners recognize skills they already have and realize how those skills can be transferred to a new job.

In the video, teachers explain that WES training is learner-focused and can benefit those who face barriers to employment or who feel out of place in a traditional classroom.
