Successful Education & Training to Employment for Aboriginal Students (Winnipeg)
Guest Speaker: Jim Small, MBA, Director, Strategy & Innovation, Centre for Aboriginal Human Resource Development
Generally, Canadian post-secondary institutions have not been successful in educating Aboriginal students. Nevertheless, the Neeginan Institute of Applied Technology at the Centre for Aboriginal Human Resource Development, in Winnipeg, has been quite successfully over 20 years. The strategies used by the Institute have not been widely publicized. In this presentation, Jim will highlight the training model used and explain why these programs have been successful. More importantly, he will explain why our students are entering the workforce with skills and dispositions that Winnipeg employer’s value.
