Adult Literacy and Basic Education

Adult Literacy and Basic Education is community-based programming that that helps participants learn skills to meet employment, personal or educational goals. Enrolment in an Adult Literacy and Basic Education course is often a step toward earning a High School Diploma, which can lead to a certificate, diploma, degree, or trades training.

Adults require opportunities for learning that are flexible and meet their unique needs. Adult Literacy and Basic Education programming is primarily offered at Aurora College but courses are also available at the Tree of Peace Friendship Centre and the Native Women's Association.

The Department of Education, Culture and Employment is committed to providing lifelong, community-based learning opportunities for adult residents in order that they may be full participants in the social, economic, cultural and political development of the NWT.
