Skills For Success

Skills for Success (SFS) is Canada’s new skills model, launched in May 2021 to renew and modernize the long-standing Essential Skills framework. The model builds on the original Essential Skills framework’s core strengths while aligning it with modern labour market needs. It also responds to a growing interest in social-emotional skills across industry sectors.

OTEC developed the Accelerated Leadership Training Series through a project partnership with the Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC). The partnership aimed to bring the Skills for Success model to life through customized training aligned with the skills development priorities of the tourism and hospitality sector.

The project tested the practical application of the model with the tourism and hospitality sector and measured the social and emotional skills gain, learning transfer, and improvements in job performance as a result of the training.

The Accelerated Leadership Training Series was offered at no cost to Ontario tourism and hospitality businesses throughout the project. The project leveraged Tourism SkillsNet Ontario to build awareness and disseminate project resources and learnings.

Project Impact on our Sector:

  • 90 businesses supported

  • 200 + participants trained
