SRDC is working in partnership with SkillPlan, Excellence in Manufacturing Consortium (EMC), and Ontario Tourism Education Corporation (OTEC) to design, implement, and evaluate a dual Skills for Success training approach, targeting front-line workers as well as Human Resources (HR) and supervisory staff in construction, manufacturing, and tourism. Through close collaboration with our sectoral training partners as well as with employers, unions, and industry associations, the project is leveraging and enhancing existing skills training programs for front-line workers while also designing and implementing new training for HR and supervisory staff to champion learning transfer. The ultimate goal is to foster more productive and inclusive workplaces by creating post-training opportunities for front-line workers to apply and continue to develop their skills in the workplace.
