Guide to Workforce Literacy is a practical guide intended for literacy coordinators, instructors, assessors, and other program staff who work with learners with employment goals. This guide provides background information on workforce-focused literacy, ideas on program planning, and examples of what some workforce literacy agencies in Ontario have done to support learners towards their employment goals.
The guide is organized into three parts: Part 1, entitled "Elements of Workforce Literacy," looks at getting started with workforce literacy programming, assessment, training plan development, training, and follow-up, with an eye to how these areas might be addressed in a workforce-focused literacy program. Part II is an overview of the research conducted in this area, and Part III looks at workforce initiatives in the field.
