The Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration (MCI) and the Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks (CCLB) launched the newly-revised CLB and NCLC bootcamps across the country.

The revised CLB Bootcamp is an online 10-hour self-study course comprising three modules:

  1. CLB Basics 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 covers needs assessment, a task-based approach to module and lesson planning.
  3. Assessment and the CLB 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 for TESL Ontario. 

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