Yukon Training Strategy. Training for the Future.
Yukon Dept. of Education, White Horse.
This document was created as part of "Yukon 2000," a Yukon government initiative for steering social and economic growth. The expressed intent of the training strategy is to direct government efforts toward preparing people for existing and potential employment in the Yukon. In some areas, the strategy confirms program directions already in place. In others, where the goals are not so easily identified, commitments are made for further work or study. The strategy asserts that Yukoners should be given ample opportunity to make decisions concerning their training programs. The document also stresses the need for accessible, high-quality training that is applicable to the workplace. The strategy calls for increased autonomy for the Yukon Community College, a goal of pending legislation. The document outlines plans for a cooperative program by government and industry to determine and meet rural training needs. To supplement services offered by its Community Learning Centres (CLCs), the government has established three mobile training units. The document expresses commitment for increasing the local control of CLCs. The strategy also calls for more career counseling services, especially for youth, women, Indian People, and the disabled. Several government initiatives for identifying and removing barriers to training for these groups are discussed. Plans for high-technology training for rural areas also are discussed. CLCs or rural businesses might be considered as potential classroom centers. (TES)
