Language Training Program : Overall Profile 2009-2013
The Language Training Program, Measure 1, has three components. The first two pertain to English and French for professional purposes courses offered through the regional language training projects designed and implemented by Quebec’s 18 health and social services agencies (the "agencies"). The third covers support activities for the trainers giving language courses in the regions and the learners who take those courses. These activities are developed and offered by the McGill Project team. The Program structure and content were developed by the McGill Project team and are described in Language Training Program – Frame of Reference 2009-2013, which also describes the target users; the Program objectives, partners and conditions; the parameters of the call for proposals for regional training projects; and regional allocation of the funding envelope. A coordinating mechanism, the MSSS-McGill Joint Committee, implements and monitors the Program, as prescribed in the Implementation Framework that the two organizations signed onto in November 2009.
