Workforce Literacy Essential Skills (WLES) Pilot Project 2009-2011 - Manual Section 1: Guide (2011)

Between 2009 and 2011, Literacy Victoria in British Columbia worked in partnership with local businesses, community organizations, and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) on a Workforce Literacy and Essential Skills (WLES) pilot project. The goal was to develop a nationally transferable program to help adult learners prepare for employment and successfully integrate into the workplace.

This document offers a look at how the project developed, from an initial model through stages of revision to the final project master plan.

The authors note that the project model is best suited for delivery in a community-based adult literacy organization that can work with corporate, knowledge, and community partners, and is able to offer services at no cost to participants. It is aimed at people who scored at International Adult Literacy Skills Survey (IALSS) level 1 and 2.
