Pan-Canadian Training Framework
As a response to recommendations arising out of the National Consultation on the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) 2000 and Niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC) 2006, CCLB/CNCLC has received funding from the province of Alberta’s Immigration Policy and Programs Branch to develop a pan-Canadian training framework that outlines best practices for implementation support to language teachers and other practitioners working with the CLB and NCLC. The project will unfold over a three month period beginning in mid-June 2010. CCLB/CNCLC will convene a working group of CLB and NCLC experts from across Canada and from a wide range of stakeholders. They will participate in a series of meetings to produce a draft report of recommendations for a pan-Canadian training framework, including actionable items. The draft will undergo review and approval by a National Advisory Committee. The final report will provide clear direction for funding proposals for CLB and NCLC training initiatives across the country.
