Educators, employers and learners can benefit from the Applications of Working and Learning (AWAL) National Project.
Initially a professional development project for educators, the program saw participants placed in a variety of workplace environments to help them connect classroom curricula to workplace learning activities.
The database, the AWAL Facilitator Guide and the program resources that remained on the web after the project wrapped up in 2005 continue to be relevant to individuals establishing education programs in the workplace. The AWAL database is available online to anyone searching for ways to bring workplace relevance to classroom activities. The project was made possible with assistance from what is now Human Resources and Social Development Canada.
