Thank you so much for accommodating that change! Many from our conference have joined today!

Ideas of how LNs and WDBs can better collaborate on labour market development activities.
Please let us know anything you'd be interested in learning more about!
Apologies for the late arrival.
To learn more about how we connect and to expand my knowledge
I have been program assistant at Literacy Network Northeast for only 4 months so I am looking forward to learning
What was the first resource again?
Compendium of Workforce/Workplace Resources and Best Practicies

Summer, someone here would like to know if a Workforce Planning and Dev. Board is the same as a Training Board?
Essential Skills Ontario paper - http://en.copian.ca/library/research/eso/workforce_potential/workforce_potential.pdf
Yes it is. They were originally called Local Training Boards.
Thanks for answering that question - it's difficult to see the chat while in the middle of presenting!
FEEDBACK--It's difficult to follow presentations without visuals. I know little of apprenticeship so can't follow the topic.
Thanks for that feedback, Nicolette. Would it have been more helpful to have text on the screen?
Or for us to have provided more info on apprenticeship before we started to talk about how we're partnering?

MLTSD funded project on apprenticeship - one stop shop under development
LBS and our Board sit on the steering committee
What geographical area, Brad?
It is based in Quinte Region but will also have a provincial focus
Nicolette -- If it helps - you can click on live transcript and as speakers are talking the transcript is created. You can follow along that way and also look back to what was said.
Can you offer support to those looking for apprenticeships who have finished college
Amazing! I will definitely check it out.
At CLA we love working with the CFWD! They invite us to every meeting and event - we feel very valued by CFWD and have seen an increase in community understanding of the impacts of adult literacy challenges.
Got it, Sara.
Yay Shannon - we work great together!

Need to find your local learning network? https://learningnetworks.ca/contact-my-network/
Please check out a partnership project in Simcoe Muskoka: https://readyfortrades.ca/ It is an assessment tool for learners interested in the trades. Math, Communications and Concepts of Science skills are assessed to determine if there are areas of additional study required for success in the in-school component of their chosen trade.
Is there a learning network in the Temiskaming Region?
I found it. :)
Very cool, Kelly. Is this new assessment tool based at all on the old EARAT (Evaluating Academic Readiness for Apprenticeship Training) tools? A refresh?
Does this assessment tool still require a fee of $500 for a two-year term?
Tamara, yes it is an online version of EARAT
Great point Tamara - We champion each other's services and specialties :)
Lori, yes the cost is $500 for 2 years if you are outside of Simcoe and Muskoka and free within our area.
That is the cost for an organization. There is no fee for an individual to use on their own.
Thank you Stephanie. I was not aware that it was free for individuals.
Another assessment tool that is available is "Essential Skills for Ontario Tradespeople" (ESOT) based on 53 Red Seal trades: https://en.esot.essentialskillsgroup.com/
To access ESOT, an organization must have an account and then they can register their clients for the assessment for one of the Red Seal trades. Fee is $35 per test-taker for pre-and post assessments in Reading, Document Use and Numeracy. Profiles of each of the Red Seal trades and skills/levels/examples are also on the ESOT site.
Well...Deb shared her Covid processes with me😀
Annual Data Walk - that sounds very interesting. I'd love know more.
I'd love TO know more. Sorry - bad grammar.
The registration is on my home page.
