April 9th, 2012 by Monika Jankowska-Pacyna

From May 14 to August 17, 2012, Conestoga College will offer 5 courses in the Teacher of Adults: Literacy Educator Certificate Program via OntarioLearn.

Originally developed by literacy practitioners in Northern Ontario and recently revised by the partnership of Project READ Literacy Network and Conestoga, Algonquin and Sault Colleges, the Teacher of Adults: Literacy Educator Certificate Program (also referred to as the ALE Certificate Program) is designed to address the training needs of adult literacy educators both in Ontario and across Canada. It provides an in-depth exploration of the key principles, practices, concepts and issues that shape the role of the literacy educator in the delivery of literacy and essential skills training in one-to-one and group settings. Contact with and feedback from the course instructor is provided via email, internet and telephone. The program consists of 5 core courses, a choice of electives and 1 fieldwork placement. Successful completion of all 7 courses is required to receive the program certificate.
