Discovering Potential: Youth Internship and Training Program

Learning Plan


A requirement for Discovering Potential: Youth Internship and Training Program is the development of a Learning Plan between the participants and their placement supervisors. This requirement applies to both internship and training opportunities.

A Learning Plan is meant to be a personalized action plan between the placement supervisor and the youth participant. It is designed to help set and meet learning objectives and expectations for the placement and should ideally be completed before the start of the placement. The Learning Plan should clearly demonstrate what types of competencies, knowledge, or skills that the participant will acquire over the course of their placement, how those skills will support future employment in the sector, or mobility to other sectors.

The Learning Plan does not need to be a long document and can even take a point-form format. At a minimum, it should address the following questions:

  1. What skills and experience does the participant bring to the placement and what would they like to learn?
  2. Which competencies and skills will the participant need to succeed in their placement?
  3. What kind of learning activities can help the participant acquire these skills?
  4. How can the placement supervisor and organization support the participant?

The Learning Plan should be defined and agreed to by the participant and their placement supervisor. A signature box is provided for each party at the end of this form.

This information may be used in aggregate to help further develop components of the Discovering Potential Program.
