Chart Aligning the Curriculum to the OALCF – Kitchen Help (2013)

This chart is part of a curriculum developed to help learners upgrade their skills in preparation for entry-level jobs as kitchen helpers.

It is part of a program called Bridging the Employment Gap, developed by the Simcoe/Muskoka Literacy Network (SMLN) in Ontario, which includes a series of occupation-related curriculum manuals. Other manuals in the series focus on clerical, janitorial, retail, and readiness for work.

The 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 use the charts to decide if a curriculum is suitable for a specific student.

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 kitchen help chart includes sections on safety; loading and unloading the dishwasher; counting and patterns; sorting and storing food at the condiment station; setting temperatures for burners and ovens; and measuring ingredients.
