Step by Step to Success in Transition-Oriented Programming

LBS adult upgrading agencies are working to attain the “Fully in Place” marker in the Ministry’s Agency Self-Assessment tool for implementing the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF).  Simcoe/Muskoka Literacy Network (SMLN) and QUILL Learning Network (QUILL) interviewed LBS programs across the province who are “Fully in Place” to gather their best practices and samples of their documents.

Updated Community Literacy of Ontario OALCF Tracking form

SMLN and QUILL have updated this tracking form with permission from Community Literacy of Ontario (CLO).  It now includes all the examples that we received from programs across the province.

Coming soon!
