Pre-vocational Training

Pre-vocational Training at LOGAN’s Training Center

The Training Center is a large classroom located at LOGAN Industries which is used for a variety of work skills training. Here, preset curriculum-based work is available on a daily basis. The classes offer our students exposure to new tasks that are similar to packaging, assembly and fulfillment work to be better equipped to work on new jobs obtained at LOGAN Industries.

Training on pre-employment skills is also a regular topic of classes in the Training Center. Our students receive training on job interviewing, resume development, completing a job application and dressing for job interviews. They are also introduced to other job opportunities such as office, retail, commercial and service sectors.

Every student who comes through our Training Center will work with a support team led by a Program Services Coordinator to develop their unique goals. These goals may include:

  • Communication Skills
  • Workplace Safety
  • Teamwork
  • Attendance & Punctuality
  • Positive Peer Interaction
  • Dress & Hygiene for the Workplace
  • Focusing on Task
  • Following workplace rules
