Curriculum Guidelines for the Ontario Adult Non-Credit Language Training Program

The Curriculum Guidelines for the Ontario Adult Non-Credit Language Training Program project, funded by the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade (MCIIT), is in the validation phase. The English version of Quartz, the interactive tool, is currently undergoing quality control. Both teams that have developed the content, the Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB) and the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB), are working together to ensure that all the components of the tool will meet the needs of users, namely FSL and ESL instructors and administrators.

 As soon as the final adjustments are made to the English version, the French content will be integrated. Training on Quartz is planned for 2015 and will be offered to all users.

Quartz aims to assist FSL and ESL instructors in planning courses, lessons, units and assessments based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks. It will address the need for harmonization in adult non-credit language training.
