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.
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.
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.
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.
