In 2017-18, OTEC and its partner, Magnet, developed an online talent assessment and job-matching system and delivery network that could respond to labour shortages. This session will introduce the core components of the ALiGN model, review key research findings and case studies from the field, and explore how community and sector-based partners can leverage the system as it expands nationally.

Learning Outcomes:
  • A new methodology for assessing and matching clients without skills/experience
  • How to build local sector-based industry-community employment training consortia
  • How to engage a growing national network of sector-based practitioners
