Description

You are invited to attend a cross-sector partnership meeting as part of the Eastern Regional Partnership for Adult Education (ERPAE), funded by the Ontario Ministry of Education to support the advancement of the provincial adult education credit strategy.

The ERPAE has recently completed an environmental scan and developed a multi-year strategic plan. In mid January 2018, the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) and the Ontario Ministry of Education (MoE) issued a memorandum inviting RPAEs to apply for enhanced funding to support collaborative projects to support the adult learner journey. The memorandum stated that

"... as part of the government's mandate to strengthen adult education, the Province is exploring ways to encourage collaboration that supports learner-centred program and service delivery. We believe that greater partnerships across sectors that focus on the learner journey will help streamline referral processes, facilitate mobility and ease transitions for learners. To support this goal, enhancement funding is being made available to the Ministry of Education (EDU) Regional Partnerships for Adult Education (RPAEs) to be used for projects that build on their existing strategic plans to improve collaboration in the adult education system and foster more seamless and learner-centred program and service delivery for adults."

I am pleased to announce that the ERPAE has received enhanced funding from MAESD and MoE to support some cross-sector meetings with local employment agencies, labour market groups and employers.

I would like to invite you and your staff to attend an initial meeting to be held on May 2nd, 2018 at the Donald Gordon Conference Centre from 9am-2pm. Breakfast, lunch, coffee and snacks will be served. The ERPAE will also reimburse all attendees for travel to the event at the Ministry of Education specified rate of $0.40 cents per km.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Brent Pickering,

PRINCIPAL of Alternative and Community Education,

Limestone District School Board
