Workplace Wednesday: LES tools for employment counsellors
Date posted: July 31, 2013
Welcome to Workplace Wednesday, connecting you with resources that link literacy, business, industry, and the workplace.
The SCALES project, conducted by CONNECT Strategic Alliances and funded by HRSDC, has created a tool kit for career practitioners to integrate Literacy and Essential Skills into their practice. The tools are free to download, and include tools to use with clients and employers.
Included is a Directory of Literacy and Essential Skills Resources, organized into 7 sections: Who Am I; What do I want to do or be?; How do I reach my goals?; Getting started: action planning; LES resources for use with employers; LES resources for career practitioners; Funded projects, reports, & other ES information. For each resources there is information on how to access it, the cost (if any), and when to use it.
