This project is a series of occupational-related curricula. The curricula were designed to help learners at Essential Skills Level 1 to upgrade their literacy, numeracy and other essential skills in an entry-level occupational context.

Mental Illness is a fact of life for 1 in 5 Canadians. This can affect all areas of a person’s life, especially in the area of education.

In 2010-11, Simcoe/Muskoka Literacy Network (SMLN) identified a need for a consolidated list of assistive technology to help people with learning and other challenges that may affect their learning. Through field support funding from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, we researched and complied the first version of this compendium, which was targeted to adult educators.
Orientation for New LBS Managers and Program Co-ordinators
An on-line, self-directed, self-study module that gives an overview of how LBS-funded agencies in Ontario operate and the job of an LBS program manager or co-ordinator. The module has been added to the Literacy Basics site in recognition that some program co-ordinators are also front-line practitioners.
