Occupational Task Profiles: Canadian Literacy and Essential Skills Workforce: A Pan-Canadian Snapshot (2012)

This document outlines a research project undertaken by Canadian Literacy and Learning Network (CLLN) to explore the competencies needed to work with adults taking part in Literacy and/or Essential Skills (L/ES) programs in Canada. The project included a literature review, along with interviews with key informants in the field.

The literature review provides information from previous research and also identifies core competencies defined in a selection of documents about initial training and professional development opportunities in Canada, New Zealand, Australia, USA, England, Scotland, and Ireland.

Key informants were interviewed about a variety of issues, including the type of programs they were involved with; length of time in the field; the characteristics they felt were important for L/ES educators; and how they had acquired their competencies.

Findings from the project can be used to examine current competencies, develop job descriptions, and design professional development opportunities.
