Embedding Literacy and Essential Skills (ELES) in the Workplace – Case Study (2012)

This report outlines a three-year project carried out in British Columbia to explore ways to embed Literacy and Essential Skills (LES) approaches in three different sectors, including health care.

An embedding approach offers a way to reach more workers and develop a learning culture, especially when funding is not available for standalone programs, the authors point out. Such an approach seeks opportunities for embedding in the everyday work and training of an organization.

Managers, union representatives, consultants, educators, and representatives from Literacy BC met for roundtable sessions where they discussed the impact of previous workplace programs. They observed that previous programs had resulted in more teamwork; greater sharing of ideas; and more confidence among participants.
