New Certificate in Family Literacy Offered On-Line

In an exciting partnership the Centre for Family Literacy, Vancouver Community College and Conestoga College are currently offering an on-line learning opportunity for gaining a Certificate in Family Literacy.

Unique across Canada, this credentialed program was developed for all levels of leadership, from executive directors and board members, to frontline supervisors and facilitators. It is designed for those who currently work or wish to work in the family literacy community, as well as those working in related fields such as health, social services, child care family resource programs and schools. In addition to the full certificate program, one or two courses can be taken that are specific to particular fields of practice.

The curriculum is based on Foundations in Family Literacy (Centre for Family Literacy, 2009) and has been developed by leaders in the field. It reflects the very best in contemporary theory and practice.

Courses are designed to provide knowledge and expertise in multifaceted areas that are key to designing, developing, and offering quality programs for both children and adults.


“The curriculum was excellent, practical and immediately useful in my work”, said one participant.
