Learners Speak Out [Video - 9:58] (2006)

This 10-minute video focuses on the experiences of two people who took part in adult upgrading programs offered throughout the Chatham-Kent, Sarnia-Lambton and Windsor-Essex regions of Ontario.

One participant describes spending his early years in a variety of foster homes, with little opportunity to get a solid basic education. Through the upgrading program, he filled the gaps in his education and continued on to college, where he is learning a trade.

The other subject explains that she left school after getting pregnant at the age of 17. After completing educational upgrading, she got a job as a cashier in a store and quickly progressed to becoming a supervisor and, eventually, assistant manager.

The video includes information on how to find upgrading programs and register for them.
