essential workplace skills

I just attended a HRDC webinar on Essential Skills practitioner training at Douglas College. This college took part in the 2012 ACCC National Essential Skills Framework Project and has been training ES Practitioners for 12 years. On the Essential Skills section of their website, their video notes that up to 32% of college students lack essential skills, which include things like scanning texts for information, the steps to writing a paper, how to understand and take notes and how to read/use workplace documents. The webinar provided a link to the Colleges & Institutes Canada list of resources related to essential workplace skills.
