DFWI programs are directly funded by the Province of Alberta ,Government of Canada and other private or not for profit organizations. These programs provide employment training opportunities to all Albertans to increase their opportunities to their employment situation.
DFWI develops the Personal Development workshops based on information gathered by employers. The most common responses to surveys by employers are assembled into a series of workshops designed to highlight common barriers to successful employment.
The workshops address soft skills barriers to employment and build and reinforce an individual’s ability to manage interpersonal and intrapersonal relationships in a manner that ensures productive engagement in the labour market.
DFWI’s workshops are solidly based and delivered from an Adult Educational perspective.
They are designed to:
- Engage the individual’s preferred learning style
