Resource:
 Ontario’s Pathways to Postsecondary Education for Adult Learners
   
Author(s):   Literacy Network of Durham Region
Published:   2014-2015
Funder:   Employment Ontario
   
Annotation:  

LiNDR has developed two resources designed to assist counsellors and learners developing Individual Training Plans with the ultimate goal of moving on to postsecondary college, university, and apprenticeship training.

The Flowchart provides a concise summary of the multiple routes an adult learner can follow to reach a postsecondary destination. It focuses primarily on the pathways which lead directly to postsecondary programming: Ontario Secondary School Credit programming, Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) programming, General Educational Development (GED) testing and the Mature Student Status application process. The Flowchart is available in both poster and letter size formats.

The Companion Guide provides more information about these four routes. It identifies important factors to be considered when deciding which learning track to take and answers many questions learners and counsellors might have. These factors include the advantages and disadvantages of each option, the intake criteria, delivery options, and time required. The Guide outlines the college and university application processes through the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS) and the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). The Guide also includes links to websites providing more information. The objective of this project was to ensure all the information is gathered together in one place to facilitate the counselling and decision-making process.
