Essential Skills
     

ESAF began its work in 2007 and is located in the heart of New Westminster. We help Aboriginal People gain valuable essential skills, which are the foundation for learning all other skills needed for work, learning and life. We provide people with skills to evolve with their jobs and adapt to workplace change.

Our professionally trained staff administers the TOWES (Test of Workplace Essential Skills) at the beginning and end of the program.  The staff also work closely with our employer partners to create and customize lesson plans specific to the job requirements.  A 12-week job-coaching program follows the initial 6-week ESAF training experience.

Essential Skills building is a crucial bridge to working with employers. Our program is an innovative approach that is focused on specific skill development related to the job. We believe that the integration of essential skills building within our structure has the potential to provide a meaningful foundation for our Aboriginal learners.

The overall aim of this program is to provide participants with customized training that will support employment success and retention.
