LearnSphere Coast to Coast!
We are excited to announce our first project on Canada’s Pacific Coast!
We launch Supply Chain 1-2-3 for the Ocean Technology and Defence sector in British Columbia in April 2019.
While we have dipped our toes in Pacific waters overseas with international development projects in the past, this is our first learning and development program to be delivered on Canada’s West Coast. It’s an important step for LearnSphere, which has been made possible through our partnership with the Association of British Columbia Marine Industries (ABCMI). ABCMI will be helping us recruit small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) who wish to increase their opportunities to sell to the Ocean Technology and Defence sector by participating in Supply Chain 1-2-3.
Supply Chain 1-2-3 is a business skills learning and development program that helps growth-oriented companies learn how to sell more in existing channels or expand their reach to new channels. The program helps business owners and managers gain the knowledge, skills and tools they need to help their businesses compete.
Realizing the lack of comprehensive learning programs to fill gaps in knowledge, applicable tools, contacts and essential skills related to supply chain opportunities, LearnSphere developed this bilingual program to help improve the business management and competitive procurement practices of SMEs in Atlantic Canada. In partnership with Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), we are piloting the national program with 195 SMEs from the Food & Beverage and Ocean Technology & Defence sectors in Atlantic Canada and BC. The program, along with bilingual materials related to its 8-12 interactive learning modules, is fully customizable and ready for application in other sectors and regions as well.
Early feedback from participants has been very positive. “I have left every session with valuable and actionable information and it's been a great way to meet other members of the local business community. The program has given me the tools to better identify which opportunities to pursue to grow the business overall. It's been a great learning experience.” – participant Erin Cahill, NavSim Technology, Newfoundland and Labrador.
We couldn’t be more excited to get our feet wet on the West Coast with the launch of Supply Chain 1-2-3 in BC 2019.
