The Facilitator Guide: A New Professional Development Tool

The Facilitator Guide is a new and comprehensive tool developed to provide information and teaching ideas and resources for integrating information from the Essential Skills Profiles - developed by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) - with the Manitoba Stages of Literacy and Learning Certificate curriculum framework. In addition to the printed guide, an accompanying interactive DVD and mini Guide provide additional support for the professional development of practitioners, facilitators and instructors.

The Facilitator Guide was created by the Centre for Education and Work (CEW), with support from both the Province of Manitoba and the Government of Canada. Funding for the project was provided by the Government of Canada.

The print version, DVD and mini Guide are available in English and French and can be purchased by contacting the Centre for Education and Work, 515 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3B 2E9. The Facilitator Guide and accompanying materials also are available on the Facilitator Guide web site at http://www.facilitatorguide.ca, maintained by the CEW.

The Adult Learning and Literacy Branch also has a limited number of copies of The Facilitator Guide (print version) and DVD and mini Guide for distribution. Contact: Barbara Wynes (204) 945-1053 or by email bwynes@gov.mb.ca.

The Manitoba Stages of Literacy and Learning (Stages 1-3) curriculum framework documents are available through the Adult Learning and Literacy Branch, Advanced Education and Training, 310-800 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3G 0N4, or on the Branch web site.
