Building on the success of our pilot pre-employment training program in Baker Lake in 2016, Performance Management Consultants (PMC) is thrilled to announce the expansion to four additional communities in Nunavut this fall with funding support from the Career Development Division of the Government of Nunavut’s Department of Family Services (DFS). Three of the programs are open to Inuit who face barriers to employment or who have disabilities (Baker Lake, Pond Inlet and Cambridge Bay), while the other two are open to Inuit youth, ages 21 to 29 (Iqaluit and Arviat).
The ultimate goal of these 12-week programs is to prepare participants to obtain full-time or part-time work, continue their education, or develop their own businesses. A small and dedicated team on the ground in each community will work to build core employability competencies, connect with guest speakers and role models, help participants gain confidence, and network with local employers to create job opportunities.
Each group of participants will also initiate a community-based experiential learning project which will help them put the knowledge and skills they are acquiring into practice.
