Workplace Wednesday: FIMESIP
Date posted: March 19, 2014
The First Nations, Inuit and Métis Essential Skills Inventory Project (FIMESIP) is designed to increase understanding of the state of practice with respect to Essential Skills (ES) initiatives tailored to First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth and adults in Canada.
This project has created an inventory of programs/resources that have an Aboriginal focus and address at least 3 Essential Skills. Through examining this inventory and a literature review, it has identified 12 Markers of Promising Practice, factors that contribute to success. Case studies illustrate the markers of promising practice in action.
The Markers of Promising Practice have been used to create checklists for evaluating services and resources. They’ve also compiled a collection of evaluation techniques and templates from their case studies in an evaluation tool kit.
Some resources in the inventory are available to borrow from the Decoda library:
- Aboriginal Literacy and Essential Skills Pilot Project (Literacy Victoria, 2013)
- An Aboriginal Essential Skills Journey: Planting the Seeds for Growth (Douglas College, 2010)
- Essential Skills Investigation (ESI) I, II & III (Aboriginal Essential Skills Guiding Team, 2007 – 2009). (Workbooks only available in print.)
