PEI Literacy Alliance Environmental Scan (2010)

In February 2010, the PEI Literacy Alliance hosted a roundtable discussion with Island professionals who are literacy and essential skills (LES) experts. Representatives from government, industry and educational institutions attended the meeting. The report, incorporating comments from those representatives, provides a look at the state of LES in the province.

The authors set out the LES challenges for Prince Edward Island, describe the province’s assets, and discuss what is missing in the field. They outline the government’s priorities, including rural development and the impact of implementing a full kindergarten program. The authors describe the linkages between programs and agencies, and list tools, programs and supports for LES in the province.

The report provides 11 recommendations, including incorporating LES assessments across the learning spectrum; promoting the use of LES online tools; and promoting the benefits of workplace learning to employers.
