Literacy and Basic Skills - Level 5 (8214)


Program Overview

Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS)

  • Strengthen English, math and computer skills necessary for success in the workplace
  • Upgrade or refresh your skills prior to entering a college program
  • Prepare for the Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) program

The LBS program provides students with an opportunity to strengthen their English, math and computer skills in order to prepare for employment or enter the ACE (Academic and Career Entrance) grade 12 college equivalent program.

Our program offers daytime and occasional evening options, and we have year-round monthly in-takes. All courses typically run September through April, and summer courses in Math, English and the Sciences run May through August.

Placement in the LBS program is based on assessment results. Students who qualify for enrolment in the LBS program will also work with the coordinator to establish a training plan with academic and career goals.

Faculty members create a supportive classroom learning environment where students are encouraged to learn at their own pace.
