Welcome to the Quebec Literacy Working Group (QLWG) Skills for Life Series. This 30 hands-on competency-based adult learning resource ranging from Getting My Driver’s License to Managing my Money was created with Quebec’s Common Core Curriculum in mind. It is can to be used in a classroom setting, both in an individualized program model and in a more traditional group progress model. Also, the resource is well-suited to a modified distance education set-up where students work independently, or semi-independently, with support from a trained tutor at a distance. Support material for tutors and teachers is available in the Educator’s section under Adult Education.

The members of QLWG understood that all learners are different. In order to address the needs and interests of all learners, our units have been divided into Essential Life Skills and Individual Life Skills. Essential Life Skills are important for everyone, while Individual Life Skills address the needs and interests of different learners. Once learners have completed the "Essential" units, they may choose a unit that is applicable to their interests and lifestyle.


In addition to the pdf versions of the units in the chart below, there are interactive E-learning units with video and narration that correspond to a selection of the units in the series.
