The Essential Skills Modules were specifically developed for fish harvester adult learners. This program is ideal for facilitators who seek to help prepare or help upgrade the skills of groups of fish harvesters. There are nine essential skills highlighted by Employment and Social Development Canada. This program concentrates on the five most required essential skills. They include reading, writing, document use, numeracy, computer use and thinking skills. The examples and the environment created in the four modules are specifically ones that fish harvesters can relate to.
