Test of Workplace Essential Skills (TOWES)

The demands of changing workplaces can be challenging for some employees to keep pace with new technologies, safety and productivity standards. It is becoming increasingly important for employers to ensure workers have the skills necessary to adapt. 

The Government of Canada and other national and international agencies identified and validated key Essential Skills for the workplace. Conestoga College is a licensed distributor of TOWES, an assessment tool that measures three of the nine Essential Skills.
