Employability Skills Toolkit

The Employability Skills Toolkit for the Self-Managing Learner is a suite of practical tools designed to help learners use and develop the skills needed to enter, stay in, and progress in the world of work.

The Toolkit offers practical support for managing lifelong learning for personal growth and workplace success, and provides Canadians with much-needed information about what employability skills look like and examples of ways they can develop and demonstrate their skills at home, school, work and in the community.

Using the Toolkit—Who Is It For?

The Employability Skills Toolkit is intended for any self-managing learner. That is, anyone interested in developing their own employability skills—students of all ages and all levels (K-12, college and university), adult learners making the transition from social assistance or stay-at-home parenting to work, educators, parents, employees, employers, professionals, labour, community leaders, governments, etc. The Conference Board is prepared to make customized versions of the Toolkit for any audience.

The Employability Skills Toolkit can be applied and used at home, at school, at work and in the community. One of the tools in the Toolkit (Tool 5) gives practical examples of how the skills listed in Employability Skills 2000+ are demonstrated at home, at school, at work and in the community. It emphasizes the transferability of skills between home, school, work and community contexts. Skills are part of the very fabric of our lives and we can apply them more effectively when we are better aware of the many opportunities we have to use them in daily life.
