Workforce WindsorEssex would like to invite you to participate in our first Industry Tour Day.
With your participation, students from local high schools will get the opportunity to explore local industries and learn about in-demand occupations.
View Previous Industry Days
On October 6, 2023, Workforce WindsorEssex and Invest WE joined forces with area school boards and industry to celebrate the region’s 9th Annual MFG Day – an initiative aimed at sharing technology and career opportunities in modern manufacturing with high school students.
On September 24th, 2019 local students and job seekers had the opportunity to tour different agriculture and agri-food companies throughout Windsor-Essex, including traditional farms, greenhouses, and food manufacturing facilities.
On March 5, 2019, over 800 students toured 18 employer workplaces that employ apprentices and journeypersons in all four Skilled Trades sectors: construction, industrial (manufacturing), service and motive power.
About Experiential Learning
Experiential Learning helps to connect classroom learning with workplace experiences. These experiences provide hands-on and work integrated learning opportunities in addition to including an aspect of reflection.
Resources for Educators
Educator’s Experiential Learning Toolkit
The Educator’s Experiential Learning Toolkit can be used by educators in the classroom with their students to promote experiential learning. To aid in the creation of the toolkit and guides, students and employers were surveyed about their personal successes with experiential learning opportunities and to provide input on how to make experiential learning opportunities even better for local students and job-seekers.
Virtual Reality Workplace Tours
Sometimes it can be hard to go visit a workplace in person. That’s why Workforce WindsorEssex put together a library of virtual reality workplace tours that you can experience from the comfort of your home, your classroom, or wherever you have access to the internet and a smartphone!
There are two types of virtual reality workplace tours in our library: video tours and Google Streetview tours.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.
