In Whitehorse, Frontier College runs the Workplace Literacy & Essential skills program for adults. The Workplace Essentials Program is designed to complement employers’ existing training systems by focusing on lower-skilled employees who require additional support and training to strengthen their skills and competencies in order to execute their jobs more effectively and efficiently.

Instructors from Frontier College are contracted by employers to provide workplace-based literacy, essential skills, and/or academic upgrading programs for their employees on a one-to-one basis, in small groups, or even online. The curriculum is customized for each individual employee’s skill set, tasks and responsibilities, while also incorporating overall employment and employer objectives, corporate culture, and processes. This results in higher individual and overall productivity, workplace safety, and a more skilled and engaged workforce.
