Journey to Apprenticeship

With all of the changes going on in apprenticeship and the need for skilled trades, the Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie created training modules for front-line staff across our community. An in-house apprenticeship expert can use these modules to train and support staff.

The Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie also offers training to local organizations to create an in-house expert. If you have any questions around the training material or want to have someone come into to train your expert, contact admin@workforceplanningboard.org

 

Training Presentation

This presentation is for staff training. The training is in 4 modules: Introduction to Apprenticeship, Getting Started, Getting the Job, Sponsor Found: Now What?  These modules can be delivered as a one-day session, in lunch and learn or team meeting situations or can be used for individual staff training.

Trainer Manual

The trainer manual contains extra information and notes for the trainer to use during the delivery. Each slide has its own notes that a trainer can use. There are also extra resources as well as videos and an activity in the manual.

Resource Guide

Experts and staff can use the Resource Guide when they have apprenticeship questions not covered in the presentation. The guide also contains extra resources for each of the presentation’s topics. We encourage everyone to make this link one of their favourites.
