On the Right Track
1. Family Literacy Training
The NWT Literacy Council believes that to support children’s literacy development effectively, parents:
The training is designed to help community people learn about literacy. At the end of the training, participants have the skills to plan and deliver family literacy programs in their communities. These programs help parents develop the knowledge and skills they need to support their children’s learning.
In the Early Childhood Development Action Plan, the Family Literacy Training Institutes are called the Northern Parenting and Literacy Program. However, the Literacy Council refers to them as “training” or “training institutes”, and so those are the names that will be used in this report.
The five-day training was designed to help communities develop their capacity to support literacy programming by providing training for local residents. During Years 1 and 2, the Literacy Council delivered the training on a regional basis. Community members who were interested in family literacy could apply to attend the training in their region. During Year 3, the training was territorial wide, and anyone from any community in the NWT could attend.
