Why is TOWES different?

Across Canada, employers, educators, labour organizations and governments are working together to ensure that Canadians have the Essential Skills needed for full participation in home and community life.

TOWES - the Test Of Workplace Essential Skills offers valid, reliable and effective assessments, curriculum and training support for organizations and individuals looking to assess and improve Essential Skills.

TOWES is also different because it uses authentic workplace documents to assess skills. Here are some examples of TOWES Test questions.
