Language for Success Framework
Purpose of the Framework
The Language for Success framework supports language, workforce, and workplace training design and instruction. It draws on the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) to provide insight into the language needed to demonstrate the nine Skills for Success (SFS).
It can be used by instructors and program designers to:
- Identify skills that second language speakers need for successful workforce integration
- Design programs and curricula
- Develop targeted instructional content
- Choose relevant learning resources for language classes
- Understand how typical workplace tasks relate to CLB levels

The Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) and Skills for Success (SFS) serve different purposes, but both address communication skills. The relationship between SFS core language skills and CLB was first established through a study led by the Centre for Canadian Language Benchmarks in 2005.
