Chart Aligning the Curriculum to the OALCF – Grounds Maintenance (2013)

This chart is part of a curriculum developed to help learners upgrade their skills to prepare for entry-level jobs in grounds maintenance. It is part of a program called Bridging the Employment Gap, developed by the Simcoe/Muskoka Literacy Network (SMLN) in Ontario.

The program includes a series of occupational-related curriculum manuals. Other manuals in the series are entitled Clerical, Janitorial, Kitchen Help, Retail, and Ready for Work.

The Bridging the Employment Gap project also created alignment charts for each curriculum, colour-coded to show the competencies, task group, and complexity levels for each of the activities or tasks in the curriculum. Practitioners can decide if a curriculum is suitable for a specific student, based on specific competencies and complexity levels.

Each curriculum was aligned to the Essential Skills, as defined by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC). With the implementation of the Ontario Adult Literacy Curriculum Framework (OALCF), all the curriculum manuals have been aligned to the competencies, task groups, and complexity levels of the OALCF.

The Grounds Maintenance chart includes sections on safety; understanding hazardous product labels; tools and fasteners; lawn and garden tasks and tools; lawnmowers; flower gardens; and communicating on the job.
