Literacy and Adult Education
Academic Upgrading / Adult Basic Education
Did you leave high school before graduating? Do you wish you were qualified for more jobs, or had the pre-requisites needed for further training? Academic upgrading may be a good choice.
Education opens doors—to better jobs, better pay, more career choices. If gaps in your education are holding you back, consider enrolling in our secondary adult education and employment readiness programs at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. We can help you unlock those doors and build a brighter future.
Adult Basic Education and Literacy programs
Sask Polytechnic’s Literacy and Adult Education department offers multiple pathways to support your journey.
We offer a full range of Saskatchewan secondary courses through the Adult 12 program, allowing students to obtain a full Grade 12 standing or attend only those courses they need as pre-requisites for entrance into Sask Polytechnic’s post-secondary programs and into other post-secondary institutions.
We also offer an Adult 10 Certificate which meets entrance requirements for select Sask Polytechnic’s Applied Certificates and GED preparation courses to prepare for entry level positions in the labour market.
Our Literacy program focuses on daily living literacy and essential skills and builds skills to a level that allows for entrance in Adult 10 or entry-level employment.
Rounding out the offerings are a number of employment readiness programs which focus on development of the essential, foundational and employability skills needed for successful employment in today’s labour force.
Registration for Adult 12 evening spring courses opens March 22.
GED® Preparation is a non-credit course which helps you prepare for the GED® tests. The course will help refresh your skills, familiarize you with the test format, and build your confidence in taking timed tests. Registration for the GED Preparation course opens March 22.
Each campus has four daytime intakes per year. In addition, highly popular 30 level secondary courses are delivered in the evening.
