Workplace Education Manitoba and Essential Skills Manitoba have been delivering Essential Skills solutions to the success of both Manitobans and Manitoba workplaces.
In response to the evolving labour market and changing skill needs, the Government of Canada has launched the new Skills for Success model defining nine key skills needed to participate and thrive in learning, work and life.
Skills for Success are the skills needed to participate and thrive in learning, work and life.
Skills for Success include skills that are foundational for building other skills and knowledge and important for effective social interaction. These skills overlap and interact with each other, and with other technical and life skills. They are inclusive and can be adapted to different contexts.
Skills for Success are for everyone – employers, workers, training providers, governments, and communities. Everyone benefits from having these skills.
Improving the Skills for Success will help you succeed in today’s and tomorrow’s workplace.
• Digital skills
• Creativity and innovation
