Do You Have an ES Story to Tell?


Workplace Education Manitoba is adding a new section to our website – the Essential Skills Story Showcase - and we’re looking for your Essential Skills story.

Send us your story and: it could get published on our website!

Thousands of Manitobans have made good use of WEM’s Essential Skills instructors, classes and resource materials over the years. It’s been a source of great pleasure to hear your many stories of change and success – great and small.

Now we’d like to share those stories with people just like yourselves in order to support, encourage and inspire them to do the same.


Perhaps you wanted to get a better job and just needed to brush up your digital skills first. Or you were finally able to contribute your expertise at team meetings after upgrading your oral communication skills. Many of you have told us you finally got that job you wanted after relearning some skills you'd simply forgotten over the years.

Whatever your story is, email us at and let others know!


Let them know about the change that happened when those skills became a little more essential in your life. And let them know how your hard work paid off !


And if you know someone else who has their own Essential Skills story to tell, please encourage them to send it in.

It doesn’t have to be long (it’s your story) and you can write it or video it and send us a link, send us an audio recording, send a Powerpoint slideshow... make us a poster! 

All suitable stories will be published on our website’s Story Showcase page, so start composing now !
