- Information and referrals
The purpose of this service is to inform people about the various services provided by the learning centres and by Employment Ontario, and to direct them towards other services when necessary.
The assessment allows centres to determine which skills each learner must improve to reach his or her goals. This assessment ensures that each person receives tailor-made training that fits his or her needs and goals.
- Development of a learning plan
After the assessment, the learner develops a learning plan with his or her trainer. The learning plan sets out the various steps the learner must complete in order to reach his or her goal.
At this step, the centre provides learners with tailor-made training. The training can be provided in groups, individually, in person, or online.
The follow-up enables centres to monitor the learner’s progress, three, six and twelve months after he or she has finished training.
