The final revisions have been made to the CLB Bootcamp with public release set for this fall. MCIIT will communicate with all the school boards that offer their program (Adult Non-Credit Language Training) once it is available, and then CCLB will open Bootcamp to other stakeholders.

MCIIT funded CCLB to update the online CLB Bootcamp to reflect content in the current CLB. The online Bootcamp is a 10-hour self-study course broken into three modules:

1. “CLB Basics” provides an introduction to the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB), including the theoretical framework, the revised CLB document and the CLB ESL for Adult Literacy Learners document.

2. “Planning and the CLB” covers needs assessment and a task-based approach to planning, module planning and lesson planning.

3. “Assessment and the CLB” deals with ongoing learner assessment and provides an introduction to PBLA.
