The CEL promotes Experiential Learning.
The Council for Experiential Learning (CEL), a volunteer body with members from the private, public and voluntary sectors, was created to foster experiential learning (EL) connections, recognize businesses with the Experiential Learning Employer Excellence and Experiential Learning Employer Champion awards, and advise government. The work of the CEL is supported by the Ontario Ministry of Education.
The CEL’s mandate is to:
- promote the value of EL in partnership with employers, educators, students, parents, and community-based organizations; and
- foster community-connected experiential learning opportunities that are meaningful to students and contribute to the development of skills, knowledge, and self-awareness necessary to succeed in the workplace of the future.
