The CONNECT Supporting the Canadian Advancement of Literacy and Essential Skills (SCALES) – Phase One: Research Results (2011)

During the summer of 2010, researchers with the Supporting the Canadian Advancement of Literacy and Essential Skills (SCALES) project surveyed practitioners who work with unemployed and low-skilled workers to find out what resources they needed in order to incorporate a Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) approach into their work.

After reviewing this environmental scan, researchers concluded that trying to reach large numbers of practitioners at once was far too challenging, and a more focussed and strategic approach for data collection was required.

The revised research strategy addressed three key areas: what is and isn’t known about current approaches to LES in the context of active employment service provision; the needs of career development practitioners; and the opportunities available to develop and test tools.

Information collected through the revised research strategy has been used by the SCALES project team to develop tools that will be tested through pilot projects.
