Perfect
Summer Burton

Thanks for answering that question - it's difficult to see the chat while in the middle of presenting!
Nicolette Marion
57:54
FEEDBACK--It's difficult to follow presentations without visuals. I know little of apprenticeship so can't follow the topic.
Tamara Kaattari
59:15
Thanks for that feedback, Nicolette. Would it have been more helpful to have text on the screen?
Tamara Kaattari
01:00:02
Or for us to have provided more info on apprenticeship before we started to talk about how we're partnering?

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.
Jodi Robinson
01:04:17
Can you offer support to those looking for apprenticeships who have finished college
Tamara Kaattari
01:04:23
Amazing! I will definitely check it out.
Shannon Lee
01:05:19
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.
Tamara Kaattari
01:06:48
Got it, Sara.

Need to find your local learning network? https://learningnetworks.ca/contact-my-network/
kelly mckenna
01:20:00
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.
Lisa Buck
01:21:02
Is there a learning network in the Temiskaming Region?
Lisa Buck
01:21:50
I found it. :)
Sara Gill
01:22:13
👍🏻
Tamara Kaattari
01:22:30
Very cool, Kelly. Is this new assessment tool based at all on the old EARAT (Evaluating Academic Readiness for Apprenticeship Training) tools? A refresh?
Lori Bruner
01:24:57
Does this assessment tool still require a fee of $500 for a two-year term?
Stephanie Hobbs
01:25:40
Tamara, yes it is an online version of EARAT
Sara Gill
01:30:35
Great point Tamara - We champion each other's services and specialties :)
kelly mckenna
01:30:57
Lori, yes the cost is $500 for 2 years if you are outside of Simcoe and Muskoka and free within our area.
Stephanie Hobbs
01:31:46
That is the cost for an organization. There is no fee for an individual to use on their own.
Lori Bruner
01:32:50
Thank you Stephanie. I was not aware that it was free for individuals.
Barb Glass
01:33:23
Another assessment tool that is available is "Essential Skills for Ontario Tradespeople" (ESOT) based on 53 Red Seal trades: https://en.esot.essentialskillsgroup.com/
Barb Glass
01:35:42
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.
