Graduation starts here
The first step to becoming a confident learner is to become a confident reader. Research shows, 89% of students who read well by Grade 3 will graduate on time. As educators, we expect this and more.

Focus on prevention, make meaningful gains
Managing the wide range of learning needs in the classroom is one of the greatest challenges educators face. Each school and community has their own areas of strength and challenge that need to be addressed in a coordinated way to make meaningful gains in student literacy and graduation rates.
Focus efforts on the most effective literacy development practices
Educators have a solid body of research evidence on how children learn to read, and what instructional approaches work best. This evidence is the foundation of the Confident Learners program. It provides a rigorous learning to read pathway aligned with instructional tools and support to set schools up for success. The program is designed to:
- Accurately identify children’s literacy skills when they start school.
- Move towards a skills-based approach to enable students to learn.
- Provide a framework, resources, and support for professional learning and collaboration.

What Our Clients Say
``The Confident Learners Program gave our teachers the tools to move each student along the Literacy Pathway of learning how to read. It was like a fine-toothed comb, clearly identifying what each student needed to work on, as opposed to a general instructional focus. Using the Confident Learners assessment tools we could specifically identify the Code and Language skills needed. Student success in reading began to improve overall, and in particular, a number of the struggling readers began moving reading levels. Their confidence and self-esteem was given a boost and they began to love reading. Becoming a confident reader was paving the way for them to become a confident learner. Our students were being rewarded with the golden ticket of becoming a life-long learner.``
