This research was conducted to provide background and an impetus for discussion about good practice in workplace education as Literacy and Basic Skills providers move forward to deliver LBS-like programs in the workplace in Ontario. As such, we researched good practice documents from the international workplace literacy community and talked to practitioners from the field.

Thanks to the educators in Ontario, the United States, Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand who gave their input on the many issues related to good practice.
