English in the Workplace (EWP): Free How To Guide for Employers

I just found a tremendous free resource that I just had to share with you. Common Ground: A How-To Guide for Employers is designed for employers to help them set up and deliver their own English in the Workplace (EWP) programs.

Written by Douglas Parsons and Paul Holmes and published by the Centre for Excellence in Intercultural Education (Norquest College) in 2010, this guide details a step-by-step process. It goes over everything from conducting a needs assessment, choosing learning settings,  finding a facilitator, setting goals, developing independent learners and evaluating the program.

There even sections on how to customize an English program for a specific workplace.

Click here to download this 72-page guide is available from the National Adult Literacy Database (NALD). As with all the resources on NALD, this guide is free and you simply download it directly from their site.
