Essential Skills Coaching

Students who wish to improve their workplace skills and readiness are invited to work with an Essential Skills Coach.  Both face-to-face and online coaching options are available.  
 
Follow up is provided through email, texts and in person.  Skype options are also available for students to access a coach.
 
The Skills Coach will work with students to review individual Essential Skill needs and create a simple customized plan, which will enable them to close any gaps in their workplace readiness.  It is well documented that higher Essential Skill levels lead to improved workplace performance and job satisfaction.
 
Learning resources are paper or computer based and provided in accordance with the student’s preference.
 
To contact an Essential Skills coach please send an email to essentialskills@douglascollege.ca.
