Ontario Learns (2005)

Strengthening Our Adult Education System

In 2004, the Ontario Minister of Education and the Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities launched a review of adult education in that province. The scope of the review was wide and included programs delivered by community agencies, district school boards, and colleges of applied arts and technology, as well as distance education programs delivered by the Independent Learning Centre, managed by TVOntario.

The authors examined literature on adult education; looked at programs funded by the two Ontario ministries and at those in other jurisdictions; and solicited the views of stakeholders in adult education.

Based on their findings, the authors propose a policy framework that outlines six areas for consideration in future program planning and decision making: investment in skills development; learner pathways; accessibility and inclusion; innovation and excellence in teaching and learning; funding and accountability; and research.

They recommend a focus on adult education in the provincial government and the implementation of the proposed policy framework to guide future action.
