Provincial Learning Standards and Outcomes for Programs

Program Learning Outcomes

Every Ontario community college program is designed to deliver a set of specific program learning outcomes. Program learning outcomes are statements that describe the knowledge or skills that students are expected to acquire and demonstrate by the end of their program of study. Program learning outcomes can include three key elements:

  • Vocational or discipline-specific program learning outcomes (all programs)
  • Essential Employability Skills (for college certificate, college diploma and advanced diploma programs)
  • General Education/Breadth requirements (most programs)

College programs are designed to deliver vocational or discipline-specific learning outcomes that relate to the unique content of a particular area of study. You can download the relevant program learning outcomes for your program by clicking on your program in the list below. Each course in a program has course-specific learning outcomes, identified in course outlines, which are designed to build knowledge and skills toward the overall program-level learning outcomes.

College certificate, college diploma and advanced diploma programs are also expected to deliver more generic essential employability skills (additional generic learning outcomes which focus on communication, numeracy, critical thinking and problem solving, information management, interpersonal and personal skills). These Essential Employability Skills are also identified in course descriptions. Find more information about the Essential Employability Skills requirementsPDF icon

College degree programs must align with Ontario’s Baccalaureate/Bachelor's Degree: Honours degree level described in the Ontario Qualifications Framework. Find more information about Ontario’s degree-level standardsPDF icon

In addition to the aforementioned learning outcome requirements, College programs are required to provide students with exposure to a breadth of learning beyond their vocational field, to increase their awareness of the society and culture in which they live and work. Please consult the College’s General Education and Liberal Studies policy for more information about the College’s mandatory curriculum breadth requirements.
