Our Training

The Centre for Family Literacy supports the development of family literacy across the province through training, development of resources, promotion, awareness, and research.

The Centre has trained thousands in the practice of family literacy across the country. Through experience, research and collaboration, the Centre has developed a logic model and standards of excellence that are shared with others in the field. Practitioners are encouraged to use these standards for their own programs and as a tool to evaluate program effectiveness.
