What is ABE?

Adult Basic Education (ABE) is an umbrella term that refers to a wide range of services, credit, and non-credit programs designed to help adult learners achieve their goals. These goals may include:

  1. increasing education and/or certification levels;
  2. gaining prerequisites for further training or employment;
  3. enhancing life skills, independence and self-sufficiency; or
  4. learning skills in specific areas (such as technological literacy, communication skills, or portfolio development).

Any student wishing to apply for any Basic Education program must first complete the intake testing. The test covers Reading Comprehension, Problem Solving and Math. It takes between 2 and 3 hours to complete. Upon completion of the test, you will be referred to the Basic Education Coordinator.

    Delivery Method: Lecture

  • Literacy Benchmarks (Level 1 & 2)

    Levels 1 and 2 Literacy Benchmarks reflect the roles adult learners fill in their everyday lives-as family members, community members, and workers. The Benchmarks, therefore, are those general skills, abilities, and attitudes adults need to function in their world. The Circle of Learning is the physical representation of the Benchmarks.

    Delivery Method: Lecture

  • Adult 10 (Level 3)

    Level three courses (Communications, Social Sciences, Life/Work Studies, Mathematics and Science) are designed for people who want to build on their knowledge and skills. Learners who complete Level Three successfully go on to further education, training, or employment opportunities.

    Delivery Method: Lecture

  • Adult 12 (Level 4)

    Adult 12 students are required to complete seven 30-level credits including:  English (2 credits), Math (1 credit), Science (1 credit), Social Studies (1 credit), and Electives (2 credits). Students may be eligible to receive a Prior Learning Credit as one of their electives if they have 20 weeks of full-time work experience or have completed a course that is equal in weight and rigor as a 30-level course.

     

    Delivery Method: Lecture

  • Essential Skills for the Workplace

    ESWP programs focus on providing learners with enhanced literacy and numeracy skills, as well as incorporating employment information and readiness (including work placements) into programs. The programs will assist participants to enter the workforce.
