Working Together: Furthering Workplace Literacy and Essential Skills in Nova Scotia (2010)

This brief document provides a starting point for discussing how Literacy Nova Scotia (LNS) can and should promote workforce and workplace literacy and Essential Skills.

As part of a strategic planning initiative, LNS consulted with a range of players involved in workforce and workplace literacy and Essential Skills, including those in the Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education’s Workplace Education Initiative. The review recommended that LNS promote workforce and workplace learning in a general way and act as a bridge among the different players in adult, workforce, and workplace literacy, as well as Essential Skills.

The authors offer background information on the players and issues involved in workplace literacy. As well, they provide a series of discussion points about such topics as encouraging more Nova Scotia employers to invest in the literacy and essential skill development of their employees; resolving issues around different conceptual frameworks of adult literacy and workplace initiatives; meeting the challenges of working together; and the role of LNS in bringing the different players together.
