Government resources help Community Adult Learning Program (CALP) providers develop and deliver programs to adult learners.
This page can help people who work with adult literacy and foundational learners find professional development resources.
These guidelines help make sure organizations receiving CALP funding:
- are familiar with the intent of the program
- understand government requirements and expectations
Guidelines balance government requirements with an understanding that every community requires a unique approach to addressing adult literacy learning needs.
Read the 2018 CALP Guidelines.
CALP reports to partners
Every year, Advanced Education reports back to CALP funded partners about:
- the CALP program vision and mandate
- programming, demographic and outcomes data
These reports provide an annual snapshot of the program’s progress throughout the province.
