SUPPLY CHAIN LINKS PROJECT

Completed in December 2015.

Through this two-part project, the Council created 15 new occupational standards and the Connector Skills-Matching Tool.


PART 1: OCCUPATIONAL STANDARDS TO SUPPORT A GLOBAL ECONOMY

Occupational standards can be used to develop job descriptions & job-performance tools, plan education and training programs, identify career paths and more.

Focus in this project was on occupations related to transportation (particularly in those areas where a sectoral approach had not been utilized and, therefore, occupational standards were non-existent: marine, port operations, rail including intermodal facilities, pipelines and air cargo), on functions related to recent trade initiatives focused on the gateway and corridors on both coasts and mid-continent, and on emerging occupations in trade, sourcing and global procurement.

The 15 standards created through this project are:

PART 2: CONNECTOR: A SKILLS MATCHING TOOL FOR SUPPLY CHAIN OCCUPATIONS

Using the Connector online assessment tool, employers and individuals are able to identify occupation-focused strengths and skill gaps, and connect to education and training resources from a wide variety of Canadian providers: universities and colleges, training organizations and industry associations.

The web application is useful to:
