WLA Training for CLARS Assessment Centres

With the new Coordinated Language Assessment and Referral System (CLARS) now in both soft and hard launch across Ontario, Ontario’s Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration is funding CCLB to offer 2-day training sessions on the Workplace Language Assessment (WLA) tool for up to 40 CLB Ontario assessors.

This tool is designed to assess English language proficiency at Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) 7 to 10 for placement into workplace-training programs or bridging programs. It is MCI’s goal that there be at least one assessor at each CLARS centre capable of administering the WLA, knowing that in some communities there may be several CLARS assessors certified to administer the assessment. CLARS sites will be contacted in the coming months regarding upcoming training dates. This project runs until September 2014.
