Literacy and Essential Skills Guide for Service Providers Assisting Homeless or At-risk Clients – Part 1 (2012)

Understanding and Using the Tools

This is the first in a three-part guide developed to inform service providers about the Essential Skills (ES) tools available through Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC), tools that can be used to help clients learn about the skills they need to enter the work force.

It includes information on how to find and select the most appropriate HRSDC tools for a particular individual or organization. It also includes a definition of the nine Essential Skills; an overview of the different types of tools available; and information on how to access those tools.

Although the guide was created primarily for service providers working with those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, the authors note that it would also be helpful to anyone who wants to learn more about Literacy and Essential Skills.

The second document in the series offers a three-step process for selecting and using the tools, while the third document is a catalogue of tools.
