Skills 4 Success


The Department of Education, Culture and Employment (ECE) is leading the Skills 4 Success initiative on behalf of the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT).

Skills 4 Success is about improving employment success for NWT residents, closing skill gaps for in-demand jobs, and more effectively responding to employer and industry needs. This initiative is driven by labour market evidence, best practice research, and informed stakeholder feedback, and supports the 18th Legislative Assembly’s  priority of fostering lifelong learning, skills development, training and employability.

Skills 4 Success is aimed at closing education and employment gaps and addressing recruitment and retention challenges in the NWT.


"NWT residents have the skills, knowledge and attitudes for employment success".
