Series: EmployAbility Success
This chart has been developed specifically for practitioners in Ontario who are using the “EmployAbility Success” workbook with their students.
The chart shows the relationship between the job tasks in the workbook and the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF). It helps practitioners understand how the job tasks in “EmployAbility Success!” support specific competencies within task groups in the OALCF.
It uses the same colour code as the OALCF for quick reference.
Series: Awareness Tools - HRSDC
This two-page document provides information about tools that are available through Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) to help understand, assess, and improve Essential Skills. The tools can be used by apprentices and tradespersons; employers; and trainers, educators, or advisors. The authors provide, in chart form, examples of what they describe as inform tools, assess tools, and support tools. For example, an inform tool might be a story illustrating how Essential Skills are used in a typical workday, while an assess tool could be a checklist to help identify training needs.
The document includes a link, www.red-seal.ca, that provides information about the Red Seal Program, the interprovincial standards system that offers greater mobility across Canada for skilled workers.

This document grew out of a project that looked at the Essential Skills of reading text, document use, and writing in relation to three Laubach Literacy series: Laubach Way to Reading; Challenger; and Voyager. The goal was to assess the material in the three series through the framework of Essential Skills complexity levels, in the same way the material had already been linked to the five Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) levels.
The author has prepared “Link” charts that show the relationship between Essential Skills and the Laubach materials. For comparison purposes, the charts also show the original designations according to the five LBS levels.
