The Red Lake District Adult Learning Centre offers a wide variety of courses, from our Literacy and Basic Skills program, to special interest courses such as cake decorating, and professional development courses. We are also an active partner with Keewatin-Patricia District School Board and Seven Generations, offering credit course programming.
Courses that we have provided in the past:
Literacy and Basic Skills
Literacy is necessary for full participation in our rapidly changing society. It is much more than just being able to read and write. It is about using the different forms of communication that give us further opportunities in our society – for ourselves, our families, and our communities.
Our Literacy and Basic Skills program runs Monday - Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Emily Bates is our classroom instructor. Our services are always free and confidential.
This program uses two formats, one-on-one teaching as well as small group settings, where learners work together on common goals. Based on skills and knowledge, an individual learning plan is created for each of our learners. Some areas that are focused on include healthy living, budgeting and money management, problem solving, and other life skills. This program will also prepare you for success when entering our Secondary School Credit Course program.
If your goal is a Grade 12 diploma, we can guide you toward that goal. If you are looking to improve your employability, we will help you work towards that goal. We can also help you prepare for an Apprenticeship. We are approachable and dedicated to make things interesting for you – we would like to see everyone reach their full potential.
Secondary School Credit Courses
In partnership with the Keewatin-Patricia District School Board we are pleased to facilitate credit courses. There will never be a better time than right now to complete your high school education. Do it for the respect you’ll earn and the career than can be yours. But most of all, do it for yourself. You’re closer than you think.
