The "Essential Skills for Successful Transition to Further Training Project" (Essential Skills Project) builds upon a large-scale, ongoing academic upgrading initiative involving Ontario's 24 colleges.
For several years, the CSC has focused on the successful transition of Ontario Basic Skills (OBS) and Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) students to further college training as required by their chosen career path. The primary goal of most students in college academic upgrading programs is postsecondary training.
The CSC conducted an extensive review of the outcomes necessary to ensure the continued access of OBS and LBS college graduates to further college training. This review went beyond merely gaining access to further training. It examined factors that ensured student success at the next stage of training. It also included an examination of the outcomes of those students graduating from the new secondary school curriculum to ensure that graduates of college upgrading programs were able to demonstrate the same outcomes.
The review process contributed to the development of the ACE Program, approved for delivery in July 2004 at all 24 colleges by the Colleges Branch of MTCU. ACE is a Grade 12 Equivalent program. It is the level of programming generally accepted by colleges for admission to college-level, postsecondary programs and apprenticeship.
LLC-Q/LVQ has strived to create a resource directory that reflects prevention activities and initiatives in the Quebec English literacy community.
Many of the organizations listed have adult literacy as their mandate, and have many activities to achieve that end. The scope of this directory is to list only the prevention initiatives. LLC-Q/LVQ has not evaluated any of these activities. Instead, we leave this up to you as you assess your needs.
The information printed was provided by the individual organizations that responded to our questionnaire. Information was collected and cross-referenced through web searches, brochures, questionnaires and follow-up telephone conversations to verify and clarify information. Every effort was made to be accurate.
We sincerely apologize for any errors or omissions.
It is our hope that the resources listed here will serve as a starting point to steer people in the right direction to find the resources they need in the area of prevention.
