What is Work Readiness Training?

Work readiness training is a type of training that helps individuals develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the workforce. The goal of work readiness training is to prepare individuals for employment by teaching them the skills and behaviors that are valued by employers. This type of training can include a wide range of topics such as:

• Job search and application skills (e.g. resume writing, interviewing skills)

• Workplace communication and teamwork

• Problem-solving and critical thinking

• Time management and organization

• Professionalism and work ethic

• Basic computer and technology skills

• Industry-specific skills (e.g. safety procedures, customer service)

Work readiness training can be provided through a variety of organizations such as schools, vocational rehabilitation agencies, non-profit organizations and government agencies. It can be provided in a classroom setting, online or through on-the-job training. Some training programs may also include job placement assistance to help graduates find employment.

Work readiness training can be beneficial for a wide range of individuals, including those who are new to the workforce, those who have been out of the workforce for a period of time, and those who are seeking to improve their job prospects. It can also be beneficial for people who face barriers to employment, such as lack of education or job experience, a criminal record, physical or mental disabilities, or difficulty speaking English.

It's important to note that work readiness training is different from job-specific training that is typically provided by an employer to teach an employee the skills they need to perform a specific job. Work readiness training is focused on developing the fundamental skills and knowledge that are needed for success in any job.
