As career counsellors and job developers, we are no longer able to adequately prepare youth for the
workforce by delivering employment preparation training and matching them with open vacancies.
The growing skills gap demands more of us and requires new ways of engaging with employers in

Learning Outcomes: 
  • Identify critical and emerging skills needed for employment practitioners
  • Learn how to create valuable relationships with industry leaders
  • Explore workforce development strategies to scale up solutions across sectors
