This literature review is part of a project undertaken by Ontario’s College Sector Committee (CSC) for Adult Upgrading. The goal of the project is to ensure that pre-apprenticeship students receive an Academic Upgrading (AU) component tailored to their trade and connected seamlessly with the trade component of their program.
The literature review focuses mainly on integration as it applies to program delivery and curriculum development. It includes integration models; the need for integrating literacy and essential skills into pre-apprenticeship and trades training; the case for integration; strategies/tips/effective practices for integration in the classroom; and the benefits and outcomes of an integrated approach.
The authors note that the literature review was limited by the small number of research reports and documents found concerning integration across the industrialized world.
