Labour Market Study of Literacy and Essential Skills Workers in Canada – Webinar presented by Anne Ramsay, March 13, 2013 (2013)

This webinar outlines a project undertaken by the Canadian Literacy and Learning Network (CLLN) to get a national picture of Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) practitioners working with adults across Canada.

Presented on March 13, 2013, the webinar features Anne Ramsay, project manager for the labour market study, introducing the online survey that will provide core data for the project. The survey is open to paid LES practitioners of all types, working in a variety of settings.

She notes that while there is substantial information about who accesses LES programs and which tools are used to increase LES skills, recent studies have revealed a gap in knowledge about who works in the LES field. This project aims to close that gap and increase the understanding of human resources issues that may affect Canada’s capacity to improve LES results among Canadians.

In addition to the survey, the project will include the examination of relevant research from Canada and other jurisdictions; interviews with key informants; focus groups of practitioners working with English, French, and Aboriginal learners; and the creation of a database of contacts connected with the field.

The project is funded by the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills (OLES) of Human Resources and Skills Development Canada.
