Canada's capacity to cope with a looming skills shortage is hampered by our inability to train and certify apprentices to meet employer demand. Part of the solution to meeting that demand is increasing the flexibility of apprentices to document their learning. As most apprentices work in sectors where lay-offs are common, documenting their learning journey will allow them to transition to other jobs more easily, as they can demonstrate the progress they have made in their apprenticeship training. This in turn will facilitate the completion of their training.
Join us for an exploration in alternative models of documenting and assessing apprenticeship competencies. In this session, the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum - Forum canadien sur l’apprentissage (CAF-FCA) will outline their plan to pilot an innovative new competency assessment tool, the Valid-8, which is being adapted for use in Canada by its British developers.
Our event chair Emily Arrowsmith, Project Manager and Researcher for CAF, will engage a panel of practitioners and experts on exploring options to non-paper-based approaches to the assessment of apprenticeship competencies, a discussion that has broader applicability to other work-integrated learning contexts.
After the event, head to the FSC Community of Practice to network and continue the conversation: https://magnet.whoplusyou.com/lp/fsc-ccf-cop.
