Measures of Success: Workplace Literacy and Essential Skills Initiatives (2011)

Presentation at Summer Institute 2011 organized by The Centre for Literacy

This presentation offers an overview of a project designed to test a model for measuring the long-term effects of workplace literacy and essential skills (LES) training programs in Manitoba and Nova Scotia.

The goals of the project include developing an evaluation framework that sets out the expected benefits of workplace LES initiatives and determines how these outcomes can be measured, then evaluating this framework in practice.

The presentation includes information on intermediate and long-term change; financial and non-financial outcomes of training; motivations for training; and learner characteristics.

It was part of the program for The Centre for Literacy Summer Institute 2011, held in Montreal, Quebec, in June of that year. The centre supports best practices and informed policy development in LES by building links between research, policy, and practice.
