Professional Skills Applied Training

$1,875.00 plus tax

This product is part of the Professional Skills Training Program. EHRC Members receive a discounted price of $1,500.

Through a series of sessions, students and new workers can put into practice the skills they have been developing.

For the applied training component, EHRC has developed facilitator guides, facilitator slide decks, skills learning group activities and participant guides that educators and trainers can use to train their learners.

This is the most resource-intensive component and should therefore be used to address the most critical needs. EHRC research revealed that the following five skills are the most critical, which will be the subject of this component:

  • Critical thinking and decision-making
  • Collaboration
  • Active listening
  • Time management
  • Social perceptiveness

Each skill will be covered in a three-hour training session. The session will include a pre- and post-training assessment, a short presentation of concepts surrounding the skill, a case study that portrays the application of the skill and a group activity that will lead the student to practice the skill.

This component is ideal prior to starting a WIL term or as part of the new graduate’s onboarding sessions.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement Program.
