Resource:
 Coordinating to Bring Low Literacy and Marginalized Clients to Employment
   
Author(s):   Literacy Link South Central
Published:   February 2014
Funder:   Employment Ontario
   
Annotation:  

This Labour Market Partnership project focused on individuals who have less than a grade 12 level of functional ability and who struggle to find jobs with their skill levels in the Western Region of Ontario. In Ontario, there are many programs that have been designed to address the needs of this target group. However, Literacy Link South Central saw a need for community coordination in order to effectively use this range of community programs to achieve an effective outcome for lower-skilled Ontarians – namely, employment.

Ten different strategies were piloted as part of this project, focused on how the Regional Networks can further coordinate local services to enhance employment outcomes for lower-skilled Ontarians. The strategies are shared and analyzed in this helpful report.

 Essential Skills Profiles
   
Author(s):   Government of Canada
Published:   Ongoing (current as of 2020)
Funder:   Government of Canada
   
Annotation:  

The Government of Canada has created a helpful “Essential Skills Profiles” website.

The Essential Skills Profiles are listed in alphabetical order by job. The jobs listed range from Appliance Servicers and Repairers, to Kitchen Helpers, to Waste Water Operators. Under each job link are the descriptions of the nine essential skills generally performed by the average worker. Tasks are rated

from basic to advanced within that job.

The Essential Skills Profiles provides a great list of tasks a learner would need for a job and an excellent way to match current skills to potential jobs. Essential Skills Profiles can be used to help learners make a plan that shows the steps to reach their career goal. This website is also a great way to explore jobs and skills prior to starting learning.
