Empowering Newcomers to Succeed

The Empowering Newcomers to Succeed project is a research project that is developing tools for both newcomers and settlement services practitioners to identify the service delivery modalities that work best for different clients based on their needs, preferences, and goals.

The project will develop three assessment tools. First, an online newcomer assessment tool for settlement practitioners to assess newcomer needs and help refer them to the service modality best suited to ensure newcomers achieve their goals successfully. Second, an online practitioner self-assessment tool that will allow practitioners to assess their own gaps in awareness, knowledge, skills, and expectations regarding modalities so that they are better positioned to identify appropriate training and upskilling for their own digital literacy needs. A third tool will be an online self-assessment tool which will be posted online and accessible on settlement websites to facilitate independent settlement planning and decision making.

An online training workshop will support settlement practitioners in their understanding of how to use the tools as well as on the benefits of different service delivery modalities for different types of clients

If you are interested in taking the assessment, supporting a client in taking the assessment or enrolling in the online training module, please fill out the form below:
