Following the four Orientation for the Revised CLB and Support Kit for Assessors workshops that were held for Ontario assessors in November 2012, January 2013 marked the beginning of the national roll-out of this session for assessors working in publicly funded assessment centres across Canada. With support from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration (MCI), this three-hour workshop has provided participants with a copy of the revised CLB and Support Kit and an opportunity to engage in hands-on activities and discussion with a focus on the assessment of speaking and writing.

Approximately 80 assessors have now been trained through sessions held in Alberta, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. In addition, CCLB has been contracted by ELSA Net to deliver sessions for up to 35 assessors in British Columbia. Alberta Human Services funding will allow CCLB to train fourteen Language Assessment, Referral, and Counselling Centre (LARCC) assessors in Edmonton before March 31st, 2013.
