Enhancing the Flow of Supply and Demand Information among Training Institutions, Students, and Employers

by Ann Harvey, Larry Orton


A key requirement that underlines the delivery of successful skills development and training programs is communication about needs and opportunities.  Enhancing the Flow of Supply and Demand Information among Training Institutions, Students, and Employers, produced by CPRN for the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities identifies best practices to strengthen the flow of information among these groups and lead to more effective training.  This project set out to identify the most successful vehicles that individuals, employers, and institutions use to communicate information about job training programs and employment needs.  It identifies the best ways to inform students about training programs they are considering; employers about programs best suited to their needs for employees; and training institutions about the needs of employers and students.  The findings will be of interest to governments and to those responsible for developing student service programs either in governments or institutions.
