In September 2017, Tungasuvvingat Inuit (TI) was awarded funding through the Government of Canada's Skills and Partnership Fund, in collaboration with ilinniapaa Skills Development Centre (iSDC), to deliver a unique training program to strengthen the Inuit labour pool for human helping/social service workers.
The training program, entitled Qanuininnirmut Ikajuqtiit: An Innovative Model in the Training and Employability of Inuit in Health and Social Services, will design and deliver accredited training modules leading to a certificate for Inuit Community Support Worker (CSW). The program is designed based on the technical and behavioural competencies necessary for the position. A strong foundation of holistic Inuit ways of knowing and doing will also be rooted in the program.
The program is also unique to support a transition of Inuit who have worked in social service organizations to further develop their knowledge and skills in organizational management and leadership training under the Management Trainee stream. This will assist organizations both in Nunavut and Ottawa to strengthen Inuit representation at all levels of organizational capacity, and improve the overall capacity and labour pool for Inuit serving organizations.
