With SURP (Skills Upgrading and Readiness Program), you can:

  • upgrade your skills for employment, apprenticeship or college.  
  • get ready for high school credits.
  • learn new skills to improve your well-being.

In our program, you will work on lessons at your own pace, with the help of a Literacy Practitioner. Lessons are specific to your goals and will build your confidence with 

  • reading
  • writing
  • math
  • digital technology
  • workplace essential skills

After registering, you will complete an assessment to help us understand your strengths and skill gaps. You will work with your Practitioner to build your learning plan.
