The funding will be split across 10 projects that will test new ways to retrain workers in fields that are being disrupted by technology. A project in Calgary, for example, will train oil and gas workers for jobs in the tech sector. Cashiers and meat-processing workers across the country will test training programs for higher-skilled food-retail jobs. And, adult learners in Manitoba will participate in programs that examine “learner shock,” described as anxiety or frustration around mid-career transitions. (The Logic)
