For several years, Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) and
Employment Services (ES) programs have been working together in communities

This targeted training series has all the materials needed
to run training for learners interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing.
Soft skills, essential skills, and technical skills are integrated.
The training has been developed to be delivered over 12 sessions, with an
optional 13th session. The optional 13th session is intended for
learners to take part in a mock interview by appointment. Each session will
take 2-3 hours. Each session has a PowerPoint. There is one learner
workbook that is used for all twelve sessions. There are individual handouts
and/or answer keys in some of the sessions. In addition, there is a sample
learner plan template with suggested milestones that can be used by Employment
Ontario funded programs. Employment Ontario Literacy and Basic Skills agencies
are required to determine a learning style for each learner. This has been
referenced in the learner handbook. However, a learning style survey is not
provided in the materials. You can use the learning style survey you are
currently using at your agency.
All of the materials that have been created can be
personalized for your agency with your own logo. They are either Word
documents or PowerPoint documents. Materials from other sources that have been
included as examples or resources are PDF’s and cannot be personalized.
