High unemployment rates, lack of decent work, low employability skills – all these challenges and others – have forced community-service organizations to identify how they can best support their community and help them navigate through the employment uncertainty. During this session, get a primer on how to start your workforce development programs, what role do partnerships play, and if labour market data is still needed. Come prepared to learn, discuss, network and leave with a sample program model to get your workforce program going.

Learning outcomes:
  • Understand the role of partnerships
  • Learn to analyse data to implement workforce training programs
  • Create program models specific to your community and needs
