Nova Scotia School for
Adult Learning

The Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning (NSSAL) was formed in 2001 to coordinate adult learning programs across the province, ranging from basic literacy to high school completion. NSSAL is administered through the Adult Education Division, Skills and Learning Branch of the Department of Labour and Advanced Education.

NSSAL provides program funding, curriculum development, program guidelines, student resources, recognition for prior learning (RPL) and practitioner support and training, and research to organizations that deliver programs directly to adults.

NSSAL provides adults a way of obtaining either high school diploma or high school equivalent [General Education Development] called the GED testing series. Click here for more information on high school diploma or click below for more information on the GED testing series.
