Aligning Ten Employment Services Workshops with the OALCF

In 2013-2014, Employment Ontario funded Literacy Link Eastern Ontario to align 10 employment services workshops with the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF). This Service Delivery Network Development Fund project resulted in identifying the Competencies and Levels required for adults to successfully complete these workshops. These alignment charts are also intended to foster accurate referrals between LBS and ES agencies.
Three of the workshops (CPR/First Aid, Fall Arrest and Smart Serve) are certified and are recognized across the province.

Digital Technology 'How-to' Sheets

As our world becomes more reliant on being able to use digital technology, we are faced with new challenges and opportunities. It is becoming increasingly important that we embrace digital technology in order to communicate with family and friends, perform tasks at work and complete further education and training. In fact, many of us have to learn new digital technologies to keep up with and communicate with our children and grandchildren!
