Canadian experiences of training linguistically diverse populations for the workplace
It has increasingly become apparent that multicultural workplace programs which focus exclusively on teaching English to immigrant employees are inadequate. This paper draws on recent Canadian research in j o b training programs to question whether the development of English language proficiency has a positive impact on the career prospects of most workplace learners. Some recent research suggests on the contrary that increasing English use can actually have a negative impact on an employee’s work life. The paper goes on to describe some of the newer workplace programs which include anti-racist training and cross cultural awareness for all members of the workplace.
