A new toolkit helps schools prepare students with the skills required for today’s workforce.
The “Toolkit of Promising Practices” outlines best practice ideas from the labour market and the education sector in Canada.
The document was released recently by the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada and the Forum of Labour Market Ministers, prompted by a symposium held in Charlottetown in 2014.
“Today, more than ever, we are experiencing a rapid and ever-changing knowledge-based economy,” said Workforce and Advanced Learning Minister Richard Brown.
The toolkit of best practices is divided into four themes—upgrading the skills of Canadians; aligning secondary school programming to labour market demands; aligning post-secondary education programming to labour market demands; and supporting the labour market attachment of target populations.
