Competencies Plus focuses on the discovery, recognition and application of essential skills in the work and personal lives of all citizens in the 21st century. Its goal is to raise awareness of the importance of essential skills and encourage their application, particularly by job seekers, job changers, immigrants, aboriginal peoples and those in the correctional system. It is also valuable as a resource for employers for employee training and development.

Competencies Plus was created by National LifeWork Centre with the support of the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada. The program was piloted in Manitoba, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec then enhanced based on feedback from participants and facilitators.

Competencies Plus is organized into two learning units and four activities. It typically takes 6-8 hours to complete. Detailed lesson plans are available in a comprehensive Facilitators Guide that is included in the Facilitators Kit with all materials required for successful implementation.
