We work with the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework as mandated by our main funder, the Ministry of Training, Colleges & Universities. We use milestones designed by the Ministry to measure progress.  These milestones are tasks featuring real-life situations, designed for each of the 5 goal paths and the 3 levels of Literacy & Essential Skills.  They are scored based on strict guidelines.  Results are entered into our case management system which enables us to track each student’s progress.

When a student exits our program, we do 3, 6 and 12 month follow-ups to monitor how their increased literacy skills are helping them succeed in life.
