Chart Aligning the Curriculum to the OALCF – Ready For Work (2013)

Developed by the Simcoe/Muskoka Literacy Network (SMLN) in Ontario, the Bridging the Employment Gap program consists of a series of occupation-related curricula, designed to help learners upgrade their literacy, numeracy and other essential skills within the context of an entry-level occupation. There are six manuals in the series: Clerical, Grounds Maintenance, Janitorial, Kitchen Help, Retail, and Ready 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 in the curriculum.

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 OALCF is the cornerstone of Employment Ontario’s Literacy and basic skills (LBS) program.

This chart is part of the “ready for work” curriculum, which focuses on job-related skills needed by all employees, across all sectors. It includes tasks and skills related to finding a job and to succeeding in the workplace.
