 Formalizing Transitions between Employment Services and LBS
Author(s):   Simcoe Muskoka Literacy Network
Published:   2014
Funder:   Employment Ontario

For several years, Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) and Employment Services (ES) programs have been working together in communities across Ontario. Because there has been no official direction on how to specifically work together, communities have taken an organic approach – doing “what they can with what they have” in order to try to serve clients more effectively. Now that both Employment Services and LBS services are using EOIS-CaMS, there is an opportunity to assess the results of these collaborative efforts to set community goals.

The purpose of this project was to research the ways in which ES and LBS programs have been working together to promote transitions from ES to LBS and from LBS to ES. As part of this research, the project:

  • documented and shared current and emerging best practices regarding transitions between ES and LBS, as well as examples of screening tools and introductory/awareness raising workshops that are in use
  • informally piloted some of these best practices in Simcoe/Muskoka
  • examined how EOIS-CaMS data and reports can be used to track, compare and project results within the Performance Management Framework
  • investigated how the transitions can be effectively documented and integrated into the current Literacy Service Planning processes and products

 GET SET for Manufacturing
Author(s):   Laubach Literacy Ontario
Published:   2021
Funder:   Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development

This targeted training series has all the materials needed to run training for learners interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing. Soft skills, essential skills, and technical skills are integrated.

The training has been developed to be delivered over 12 sessions, with an optional 13th session. The optional 13th session is intended for learners to take part in a mock interview by appointment. Each session will take 2-3 hours.  Each session has a PowerPoint. There is one learner workbook that is used for all twelve sessions. There are individual handouts and/or answer keys in some of the sessions. In addition, there is a sample learner plan template with suggested milestones that can be used by Employment Ontario funded programs. Employment Ontario Literacy and Basic Skills agencies are required to determine a learning style for each learner. This has been referenced in the learner handbook. However, a learning style survey is not provided in the materials. You can use the learning style survey you are currently using at your agency.

All of the materials that have been created can be personalized for your agency with your own logo.  They are either Word documents or PowerPoint documents. Materials from other sources that have been included as examples or resources are PDF’s and cannot be personalized.

The full package can be downloaded below.
