The three-year Prework Training (PWT) program is designed to provide students with a gradual transition into work and community life, in addition to academic instruction aligned with each student’s needs, abilities and IEP goals. The Prework Training certificate attests to students’ general employability skills.

The sections below contain a rich variety of resources to support teachers in providing high-quality instruction adapted to the needs of their students. Under Teaching and Learning Tools you will find Learning and Evaluation Situations developed by Québec teachers specifically for the PWT program, in addition to other locally-developed resources.
