Workforce Literacy and Essential Skills

About the Program

Our Workforce Literacy and Essential Skills program supports you as you upgrade your command of reading, document use, writing, math, and digital technology skills in preparation for further education or employment.

This program includes a hands-on component that offers practical experience in a real-life setting. You’ll build confidence working in a team, carrying out job-related tasks such as working in a snack shop or preparing a lunch. Program content is flexible and can be tailored to your needs and goals.

As part of the intake for this program, we’ll assess your skills level and identify your strengths using our Communications and Math Employment Readiness Assessment (CAMERA) system. Then we’ll help you track your progress using ongoing assessments as you learn.

The program is free (funded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities) and offered full-time. Intake is year-round and you can start any Monday.

Who is Eligible?
  • This program is open to Ontario residents who are 19 years and older with a Grade 12 education or less. Transportation support is available if you qualify.
