From Hairdressing to Welding ? The skilled trades are changing. Come learn how. Why would a carpenter or welder need to use a computer? How do hairstylists' math skills help them get ahead? How can I get into a trade if I don't have a High School Leaving Certificate? During Adult Learners' week (la Semaine québécoise des adultes en formation), the answers to these questions and more will be presented by the Quebec English Literacy Alliance in half-day sessions at six adult education centres and communities on the Lower North Shore of Quebec starting on March 26th.
|Rivière St-Paul||St-Paul School||Monday March 26||9 am ? Noon|
|Rivière St-Augustin||St-Augustine School||Monday March 26||6 pm ? 9 pm|
|La Tabatière||Mecatina School||Tuesday March 27||9 am ? Noon|
|Chevery||Netagamiou School||Wednesday March 28||9 am ? Noon|
|Harrington Harbour||Harrington School||Wednesday March 28||6 pm ? 9 pm|
|La Romaine||Marie-Sarah School||Thursday March 29||1 pm ? 4 pm|
The presentations will give targeted information about how changes in the trades have increased the need for essential Skills training such as using a computer, problem solving, working with others, and oral communication. With guidance from professional filmmakers, participants will learn video-making techniques including brainstorming and storyboarding, and use Essential Skills to plan and create thirty-second video segments.
Participants will be invited to upload their completed segments as contest entries to the -1001 Ways to Learn Challenge? sponsored by la Semaine québécoise des adultes en formation where they will be eligible to win prizes if selected by the judging panel.
Says Louise Quinn, Executive Director, Quebec English Literacy Alliance, -We'll use job-specific examples to show adult learners how Essential Skills can help them get ahead in the trades. Training is available through our network of school boards and Literacy and Essential Skills practitioners across the province.?
