Building Vibrant Learning Communities: Framework and Actions to Strengthen Community Adult Learning Councils and Community Literacy Programs
Alberta Advanced Education and Technology
Because of the important role played by community learning providers, Premier Ed Stelmach asked Canadian Minister of Advanced Education and Technology to increase support for community education and literacy programs. Community Adult Learning Councils and other community providers of adult literacy and family literacy programming are primarily voluntary sector grassroots organizations independent from government with an accessible, local presence; local governance, input and leadership from community members; significant in-kind, volunteer and financial support from the local community; and efficient and sustained services and programming that address locally determined learning needs. This framework and action plan aims to strengthen the ability of Community Adult Learning Councils and other community literacy providers to provide local programs and services, clarify their important role, and create greater alignment with the public post-secondary system, specifically, with Comprehensive Community Institutions. The publication sets forth a vision statement, desired outcomes, and guiding principles. Two appendixes are included: (1) Policy Context; and (2) Community Adult Learning Councils and Community Literacy Programs. (Contains 7 notes.)
