Lifelong Learning Self-Assessment Tool
Self-assessment has an important place in lifelong learning. It gives you the opportunity to reflect on the skills you have already acquired, the skills you use most often and the skills you may need in the future.
Community Literacy of Ontario's Lifelong Learning Self-Assessment Tool is comprised of 50 skills adapted from:
- The Adult Literacy Educator Skills List (Ontario Literacy Coalition, 1999)
- Teachers for Tomorrow (College Sector Practitioner Training Strategy, 2000)
- Provincial Standard for the Training of Paid Practitioners (Community Literacy of Ontario, 2003)
- Provincial Standard for the Training of Volunteer Tutors (Community Literacy of Ontario, 2003)
- Laubach Practitioner Training Strategy (Laubach Literacy Ontario, 2000)
- School Board Sector Practitioner Training Strategy (CESBA, 2000)
- Emergent Skills (Community Literacy of Ontario, 2009)
Consultants from all sectors reviewed the Self-Assessment Tool skills and agreed that the Self-Assessment Tool contains a concise listing of the key skills required by literacy practitioners.
The Self-Assessment Tool is for practitioners who want to identify gaps in their knowledge, skills and experience. As well, the Self-Assessment Tool helps practitioners to access training opportunities. The tool is easy to use and you can access it as often as you would like to inventory your skills and skill gaps. The Self-Assessment Tool will also generate a personal learning plan that matches your training needs with training opportunities.
The tool is entirely confidential. Together with the Personal Learning Plan, your self-assessment creates a personal record of the skills you need now and in the future.
