Course description

This workshop deals with the skill of writing. Writing is more important than ever before. We use it every day at home and at work. We send text messages and emails instead of having conversations in person or on the phone. Good writing skills are useful in many different areas of life.

The Writing course is part of the UP Skills for Work program which helps you build skills for learning, work, and life. When you have these skills, you have the foundation you need to work well with others--at work, at home, and in your community. The UP Skills for Work program courses include: Motivation, Attitude, Accountability, Presentation, Teamwork, Time Management, Adaptability, Stress Management, Confidence, Reading, Writing, Numeracy, Communication, Digital, and Problem Solving.

This course is made possible through support in part by the Government of Canada’s Adult Learning, Literacy and Essential Skills program. Canada Life is the founding sponsor of UP Skills for Work. To learn more about the program, please visit the UP Skills for Work website.
