There are many reasons for returning to learning. Maybe your goal is to:

  • Get help with everyday reading and math skills
  • Get your high school diploma
  • Complete high school credits to prepare for college or university
  • Get a job

Whatever your reason for returning to learning, you may find the help you need at one of the many Adult Literacy Programs or Adult Learning Centres found in Manitoba.

Adult Learning and Literacy (ALL) administers and supports the development and delivery of adult focused programming through adult learning centres and adult literacy programs in Manitoba. Programming is designed to enable Manitobans to improve their ability to understand and employ printed information in daily living activities at work, at home, and in the community and to obtain high school credentials so they can access higher education and/or better employment opportunities.

As well as registering adult learning centres (ALCs) and funding both ALCs and literacy programs, ALL also offers training and professional development workshops for new and experienced literacy practitioners and adult educators.

ALL also administers the GED Testing Service in Manitoba. GED certificates are recognized by most employers and may be accepted for employment, apprenticeship admission, and other training programs.
