North York Women’s Centre is thrilled to introduce “UP Skills for Work” program with a hope to reduce employment barriers and provide women with support that would equip them with soft skills to get or maintain employment.

UP Skills For Work helps learners develop key employability skills through free workshops. The nine topics covered are: Motivation, Attitude, Accountability, Presentation, Teamwork, Time Management, Adaptability, Stress Management, and Confidence. Soft skills help workers to be adaptable and motivated throughout their whole employment and as they move into new roles or careers. In other words, they lay the foundation for a strong and flexible workforce and for happy, fulfilled workers.

UP Skills for Work focuses on 9 key employability skills that hiring managers look for.
