Community-Owned Workforce Development Plan
ALL ROADS will work with all relevant stakeholders in each Nation, as well as Knowledge Keepers and Elders, to establish employment readiness plans based on a holistic view of traditional knowledge and skills that reflect the true needs and possibilities in the area. Plans are for the Nation’s own use and will be used to identify employment and training options for participants in the short and long term.
Individualized Road Map & Support
Attainable road maps will be developed with each participant to help them overcome barriers to employment – from returning to school to pursuing new training opportunities. Each road map will lead to the participant gaining employment and career opportunities that are specific to their personal and cultural goals– whether in or out of community. We do this using four steps.
- Build up Work Readiness for Community Members – Work with schools and participants to build confidence, plan personal paths and improve readiness for work.
- Upskill for Jobs and Support Graduation – Math and Language upgrading and work integrated graduation paths (school credits for employment experience)
- Skills and/or Trades Training for Work - Increase informed decision making through exploration and build applied skills for the work available
- Supported Work and Apprenticeship Placements – Job placement, apprenticeship registration and support and follow up through employment.
