In order to foster a further understanding and clear definition of the types of skills needed by local employers, Workforce WindsorEssex is producing an inventory of the types of skills and skill levels required for occupations. This information will be collected directly from employers, job postings, and employment and training services. This inventory will also provide a common definition for each skill type such as foundational skills, soft skills, technical skills, and literacy skills. A common definition and classification of skills will facilitate a better community understanding of the skills mismatch and will allow for the mismatch to be better addressed. Following its completion, the inventory will be available on the Workforce WindsorEssex website.
This project falls under the Integrated Planning LEPC Pillar and has been overseen by the Employer Engagement Working Group.
