The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade (MCIIT) and CCLB launched the newly-revised CLB and NCLC Bootcamp courses for ESL and FSL instructors. Bootcamp is a basic, ten-hour introduction to the CLB framework. The course is designed to be self-study, while maintaining the capacity for group-based, instructor-led delivery. It is comprised of three modules:

  1. CLB Basics, which covers an introduction to the CLB, including the theoretical framework, the revised CLB document and the CLB ESL for Adult Literacy Learners document.
  2. Planning and the CLB, which covers needs assessment and a task-based approach to module and lesson planning.
  3. Assessment and the CLB, which deals with ongoing learner assessment and provides an introduction to Portfolio-Based Language Assessment (PBLA).

A certificate of completion will also be generated for instructors wishing to document professional development hours. 

Questions related to either of the Bootcamp courses can be directed to [email protected].
