St. Augustine's Institute for Workforce Education aims to consolidate and considerably expand its workforce development and business services. Our vision is to be the largest provider of workforce development services in the State of Illinois by 2012. The Institute for Workforce Education offers workforce training to employers in all major sectors of the Chicagoland area economy.
We specialize in delivering comprehensive and quality focused training that impacts the bottom line. Comprehensive Service Approach From our custom needs assessment to curriculum and instructional design, training, evaluation, and reporting, the IWE's training approach is both cohesive and comprehensive. Access to Training Grants Through its partnerships with the U.S. Department of Labor, the City of Chicago, and the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, the IWE assists employers in the qualification, identification and management of grant funds to subsidize the cost of services.
Experienced Trainers The IWE delivers training through highly skilled, certified trainers with real world experience in their areas of expertise.
Proven Training Model Our Experiential Learning Approach (ELA) is a learner-focused system that encourages active participation through hands-on involvement with meaningful and relevant skills practice. Effective Training Materials The IWE uses curricula and training materials designed with the Experiential Learning Approach in mind. Training participants are left with comprehensive guides to use as a reference and resource during and after training.
Multilingual The IWE offers all services in both English and Spanish. Other languages are available at client's request.
On or Offsite Facilities All services are offered onsite at your facilities. We can also make available facilities throughout the City and the metropolitan region for larger training sessions. Bottom-up Approach The IWE delivers training not just to executives, but to all levels of the organization. Customized training ensures that all employees receive a relevant and effective experience designed specifically for them.
