Literacy is much more than just reading, writing and math skills.
Literacy is a means of identifying, understanding, interpreting, creating and communicating in our digital, information-rich and fast-changing world. (adapted from UNESCO, n.d.)
Literacy is “understanding, evaluating, using and engaging with written texts to participate in society, to achieve one’s goals, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential”. (OECD, 2016. The Survey of Adult Skills)
The Skills for Success (SFS) initiatives will support ongoing LBS program development objectives by building capacity across cultural streams and delivery sectors; strengthening LBS employment and apprenticeship outcomes, integrating LBS services into the broader workforce development system; and enhancing and expanding blended and fully distance learning opportunities.
The creation of curriculum resources and the development and delivery of service delivery pilots related to the following five initiatives:
- Workplace Literacy
- Integration of LBS services to support Better Jobs Ontario
- Integration of LBS services to support Apprenticeship
- Underrepresented groups
- Enhancing and expanding Digital Delivery
