Regional Workforce Training Plans

The Client
Regional Workforce Tables in Northwest, Northeast and the Kootenay Regions of British Columbia and the Government of British Columbia

The Challenge
The government of British Columbia created Regional Workforce Tables to bring people together to discuss ways to best align training programs to meet regional needs.Workforce Tables are regionally-driven groups, with key leaders from industry, labour, employers, Aboriginal groups, training providers, economic development organizations and others. The Tables apply local knowledge and expertise to identify economic development opportunities and ensure that local training meetings local needs.

The Solution
Ingenia prepared a labour market demand analysis, developed occupational profiles, completed a supply side review and gap analysis and developed the Training Plan. We worked with regional industry to develop a list of occupations with critical skills shortages. We conducted interviews and focus groups throughout the regions to identify current training gap and recommended solutions. We facilitated strategic planning sessions with each Table.

The Result
Regional Skills Training Plans that effectively focus regional training. Local training organizations have received funding to implement recommendations. Tables in the Northwest and Northeast and Kootenays have carried on and are looking for other opportunities for regional collaboration.
