Grade 12 Equivalency (GED)

Almost all jobs require a minimum education of Grade 12 or an equivalent.

WIL's General Educational Development (GED) program allows adults who have not finished high school to show that they have acquired the knowledge and skills associated with (and comparable to) high school completion.  To earn the Ontario High School Equivalency Certificate candidates must write and pass an Ontario Ministry exam.

The Process

  • Register for the GED Pre-Test Assessment by contacting WIL.
  • Write a GED Pre-Test Assessment (3 to 5 hours) at WIL to determine how well you will do on the Ministry exam
  • Meet with WIL's staff to review your scores and readiness to write the Ministry exam. If your GED Pre-Test Assessment results show you are ready to write the exam, we will help you register.
  • If your GED Pre-Test Assessment results show you require some educational upgrading before writing the exam, our trained staff will develop a personalized preparation plan that will work for you.
  • WIL's specialized computer software will help you prepare. Our Computer Assisted Learning Centre provides you with the support of an on-site facilitator and resources for self-directed study. WIL's Computer Assisted Learning Centre is open 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Mon - Thurs). Computer assisted training can also be arranged by Internet from your own home to supplement your work in our Computer Assisted Learning Centre.

In order to participate you must be:

  • An Ontario resident
  • 18 years or older
  • Out of school for more than 1 year
  • A minimum Canadian Language Benchmark Level 8 ESL (if English is your second language)

Contact WIL to learn more or to schedule an appointment.

Please note that all GED services are provided on-site at our offices located in London, Ontario.
