Targeted Training in Ontario Through LBS 2019
As in previous years, the Adult Basic Education Association (ABEA) has updated the Targeted Training in Ontario through LBS list. Targeted training refers to any specific, short-term training such as 6 weeks of apprenticeship math or 3 months of soft skills training. Targeted training may be for a specific audience such as Ontario Workers, youth or older workers. Practitioners can use this list to get information about training developed to agencies across the province and connect with the developers for more details if they are thinking of offering something similar in their programs.
