Aboriginal Essential Skills Guiding Team – Starting Somewhere, Sharing Everywhere

The guiding team is a group of individuals who work within a network of Aboriginal organizations that share information and work jointly to support a broader understanding of Essential Skills (ES) and its potential to raise Aboriginal Peoples’ skill levels. We are passionate about literacy and learning. The team works to: build capacity; deliver quality ES programming within their service areas; increase awareness related to ES; provide information regarding best practices, program models and materials and resources for the delivery and integration of ES into Aboriginal or mainstream employment and training programming.
• Our Mandate:
• To work together to increase our capacity to deliver quality Essential Skills programming within our service areas, and to freely share any models, materials and resources that result from our efforts.
• Our Philosophy: To work with all like-minded individuals and organizations who seek to support Essential Skills building for all.
