Pathway to Work: a new training solution:
Training programs have long been an efficient way to get under-employed Canadians fully engaged in the work- force. But traditional approaches often fail because they’re typically designed with only one stakeholder – job-seekers or job creators – in mind. So PTP is proposing a new solution, one that brings the two together and targets both their needs at the same time.
Creating a lasting “Pathway to Work.”The Pathway to Work project rejects the conventional wisdom around jobs training and replaces it with customized strategies for getting people into sectors where the need for workers is greatest. This federally funded project will build an innovative, fast-track training model to help job-seekers gain the kind of skills that meet real-time industry needs. A four-year, multi-phase pilot program, funded by the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills, Pathway to Work has built-in opportunities to learn and refine, so it gets better as it goes along.
