LaunchPad Fast Track
Many providers have expressed interest in LaunchPad but have been without capacity to commit to the full program. First Work and Purpose Co are now pleased to offer LaunchPad Fast Track with only 7 weeks of classes (one 3 hour session every 2 weeks).
What’s LaunchPad Fast Track? The demand-driven program delivery you’re looking for in training, now offered in a 7-week program to accommodate your busy practitioner schedule.
Through LaunchPad Fast Track, you will learn:
- The ins and outs of dual-customer programs – the new approach coming in with transformation.
- Inform workforce solutions by building partnerships with industry employers
- Conduct Job Requirement Analysis (JRA) for evidence-informed programming
Application close: November 5th, 2021
Program course dates: January 5th-March 30th, 2022
The 7-week course will focus on the dual-customer workforce approach and how to design industry specific programming using adult learning best practices. This content will support participants to identify a targeted occupation and sector, build partnerships, identify workforce needs and design pre-employment programming to meet identified needs.
