Breaking the Barriers to Literacy - Part 2 [Video - 6:27] (2009)

This is the second and final part of a video prepared by Literacy Network Northeast (LNN), one of 16 regional literacy networks in Ontario funded by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. LNN works with government-funded Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) agencies that offer programs to adults who want to upgrade their Essential Skills in order to find work, go on to further education, or achieve greater independence.

The video features more learners sharing their experiences of returning to school, including a woman whose previous education was in French. She goes back to school to work on her English skills and finds a new career as a social worker.

There are also interviews with instructors, who share the pleasure they get from watching learners blossom.

The video’s narrator describes the Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) program, which gives students the equivalent of a Grade 12 diploma.
