Bridging the Employment Gap for Learners with Low Literacy Levels (2008)

This document is a presentation that gives literacy practitioners an introduction to the Bridging the Employment Gap program developed by the Simcoe/Muskoka Literacy Network (SMLN) in Ontario.

The program consists of a series of occupational-related curricula, designed to help learners upgrade their literacy, numeracy and other essential skills within the context of an entry-level occupation. There are six manuals in the series: Clerical, Grounds Maintenance, Janitorial, Kitchen Help, Retail, and Ready for Work.

The slideshow explains how to use the components of the program to help learners prepare for employment. It also includes information about Essential Skills, the National Occupation Classification (NOC), and the Ontario Skills Passport.
