Assessor and Instructor Training
Over the last few months, CCLB has set up a number of different training sessions across the country. CLBPT and CLBPT calibration sessions were held in Brampton, Dartmouth, Edmonton, Mississauga and Moose Jaw, resulting in 11 newly trained and certified CLBPT assessors and 13 current assessors re-calibrated. CCLB also trained two new regional CLBPT trainers in Saskatchewan. One LPT session was held in Edmonton for 5 participants and one Introduction to CLB and Support Kit session was held in Toronto for 6 participants.
In Ontario, funding from the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade (MCIIT) continues for assessor training related to CLBPT, CLBLPT and WLA in CLARS centres. For instructors, delivery of CCLB’s half-day, face-to-face classroom assessment workshops related to SAM, Integrating Assessment and Exit Tasks also continues. These workshops are being delivered for instructors in MCIIT’s Adult Non-Credit Language Training programs in participating Ontario School Boards. CCLB continues to work with MCIIT and sites to set up requested training and to find ways to address training needs in areas with less demand.
CCLB also continues regular communication with sites outside of organizations funded for training under MCIIT to set up training on a fee-for-service basis. Outside of Ontario, we have received communication from many sites that with the impending refugee intake, they will be looking into increasing their capacity, and CLBPT sessions will likely be in high demand over the next few months.
