This report describes a review of the training and certification system used by Laubach Literacy Ontario (LLO) to ensure that tutor and trainer competencies required by all levels in LLO’s current certification system were identified. The project, which began in January 2009, was considered one of the affiliated projects in support of the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum initiative.
Prior to that point, LLO’s training system required all trainers to participate in a 12-hour live workshop to complete their certification. Through this project, all trainer workshop segments were converted to an e-platform to make delivery flexible enough to meet the needs of those who are unable to attend a full live workshop.
In addition, a video was developed to support each segment or module. The online training segments for trainers were reviewed, developed, and peer-reviewed by LLO’s Training, Development and Certification (TDAC) system and are now available to all literacy practitioners across the province, not just those belonging to member agencies.
The updated certification system was launched on the LLO website during 2011. For more information, please click here: http://www.laubach-on.ca/teach/training/forms.
