Practical PIAAC*

What Alberta Practitioners Need to Know

*Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies

Date: September 18 & 19, 2014
Place: DoubleTree Hilton Hotel West Edmonton
Cost: $60

A general overview of PIAAC and the differences between PIAAC and IALSS will be explored. We hope to investigate PIAAC from an Aboriginal focus and a workplace focus. We will also explore practical ways and tools to share this information with your boards and communities.

Registration will be opening in June and a limited number of travel subsidies will be available for people travelling from out of town.

Adult Tutors Needed

Today, thousands of adults in Alberta struggle with literacy. Imagine their challenges with school, job applications, safety manuals, menus, prescriptions, instructions, signs and maps.

Every week, new learners come to the Centre for Family Literacy seeking to grow their basic literacy and essential skills. They want to succeed and function effectively in our society. While some benefit from our group classes, most are seeking a tutor who can work one-on-one with them to improve their reading, writing or math skills.

You can make a difference.

We provide our volunteer tutors with:

  • free tutor training
  • access to resources
  • ongoing support

For more information, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at or 780.421.7323.

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and without their commitment, support and hard work, so many of our initiatives would not be possible.
