Enhancing Pathways - Phase 2: The Literacy and Language Continuum (2012)

This report outlines the second phase of a project designed to build the coordination capacity of Ontario’s regional literacy networks, and to further develop partnerships among service delivery agencies that provide literacy and language programming.

Agencies in five pilot sites took part in the project. The agencies are responsible for delivering a variety of programs funded by Ontario’s learning ministries, including Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU); the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration (MCI); and the Ministry of Education (EDU).

Feedback showed increased understanding of literacy and language program delivery; enhanced knowledge among educators and workers regarding learner pathways and transition points among, and between, the programs; increased awareness and trust among educators about each program, making it easier to make referrals; and increased knowledge among regional networks regarding coordination practices between literacy and language programs.

Among the recommendations to emerge from the project were the development and maintenance of partnerships; the inclusion of services from other community agencies to support learners; the development of common assessment models; and the alignment of policies in the relevant provincial government ministries in order to provide a supportive policy framework for service coordination and program delivery.
