With the involvement of several project partners, SRDC is developing assessment and training resources to support both transferable and sector-based Skills for Success (SFS) programming; designing and implementing targeted and intensive SFS training to address individuals and employer needs; and customizing assessment and training resources for underrepresented groups. This is being done through a two-model system ranging from “lighter touch” general training and capacity building to more intensive development, customization, and pilot testing of new training resources.
More specifically, the project broadens and deepens existing capacity-building efforts in the skills and employment training sector by scaling up the use of our SfS-aligned online measurement platform; testing new SFS measurement options, including self-report and objective assessment methodologies; developing, delivering, and evaluating new SFS curricula, training resources, and assessment tools; and disseminating findings, best practices and lessons learned to continue building sectoral knowledge and capacity.
