Toronto District School Board
Essential Skills Upgrading (ESU)

Toronto District School Board’s Essential Skills Upgrading program provides adult learners with the cost-free opportunity to improve their skills in reading, writing, numeracy and digital skills.   In non-pandemic times, we offer classes in more than 20 locations across Toronto.  Currently, remote learning allows learners to continue their learning journey while remaining safe. We accommodate our learners with flexible learning options through full-time, part-time and evening classes.  Our assessors and instructors work with learners individually to develop and implement personal learning plans and learning activities.  Our learner-centred approach allows learners to play a key role in determining their learning path to reach their goals.  |
