  3. Inspiring Education Policy Shifts To achieve the vision of an educated Albertan in 2030, Albertans said we need to make the following shifts in policy:

  4. Inspiring Education What we Heard An EducatedAlbertan in 2030 Risk taker Critical thinker Resilient Literacy and Numeracy Life-long learner Resourceful Creative Self-reliant Confident Adaptable Financially literate Technology literate Competitive Collaborative Takes personal responsibility Empathetic Values diversity Respectful Environmental steward Communicator and team-builder Local Contributor

  5. Directions for Future Curriculum Focus on competencies Content-focused Opportunities for local decision making and greater depth of study Prescriptive curriculum with limited flexibility Primarily focused on summative assessment Balance among formative and summative assessments Print-based Digitally based Collaborative and co-development models Ministry-led development Synchronous development Sequential development

  7. DUAL CREDIT Dual Credit Opportunities • Education and Advanced Education and Technology collaborated to support dual credit opportunities, including the following: • Calgary Catholic Schools and Calgary Board of Education and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology • – Pharmacy Technician Retail certificate;   • NorQuest College and Edmonton Public Schools – Print Media Production Program. 

  8. DUAL CREDIT Dual Credit Opportunities • Education also provided support for dual credit opportunities, including the following: • Chinook’s Edge School Division and Olds College • – The Community Learning Campus • (welding, machining, carpentry, • technician basics, equine science and • fashion marketing); and • Paving Health Pathways: A Health Services Strategy • – two school jurisdictions were dual • credit programs.

  9. DUAL CREDIT EDMONTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS Prepare yourself for a career in health care with our two year Foundations of Health Sciences program. You’ll explore the health care field, develop an understanding of how the human body works, and learn basic skills regarding patient care. You’ll also earn certificates including First Aid and CPR, and develop skills, attitudes and behaviours to assist you in future job prospects. Upon completion, you may choose to continue on with post-secondary studies in one of the Health Sciences - an exciting field with countless career opportunities. Foundation of Health Sciences is a two course sequence. Prerequisites are aligned to prepare you for post-secondary opportunities.


  11. DUAL CREDIT CHINOOK’S EDGE Dual Credit Programming What is Dual Credit? Dual credit allows high school students to earn credits in high school and college at the same time. Olds College and Chinook's Edge have offered dual credit by using CTS and college credit in welding, equine, carpentry, machining, fashion and landscape construction on-site, online, and in blended environments. Who is eligible? Grade 11 and 12 students are eligible for dual credit. Students need to be prepared for the expectations and rigors of a post-secondary course. Students interested in participating must be approved by their high school. Students then complete an application package, including a responsibility agreement and a written statement of intent. What courses will be available? In 2011-2012, we have tentative plans to offer courses in welding, machining, landscape construction, equine, and fashion marketing. Final course information and application packages will be available from your high school before the end of May for the first semester and before the end of November for the second semester.

  12. DUAL CREDIT CHINOOK’S EDGE CLC launches hairstylist apprenticeship 15 Feb The newest dual credit program has brought together new funding partners, business professionals and a full roster of eager students from throughout Chinook’s Edge, as the Community Learning Campus launches a Hairstylist Trade pre-employment apprenticeship program. “There has been a great deal of interest in this program and we were pleased to see it fill so quickly,” said Jean Madill, Executive Director of Campus Alberta Central, which is funding the pilot program. “Our mandate is to provide opportunities for adult learners throughout the Central Alberta region. We wanted to support the efforts to bring in this new opportunity for students to learn a trade, to determine if it is a viable program to offer to adult learners. Judging from the response so far, I would say the investment is a success.” Above-average growth is predicted in the hairstyling trade in the coming years, making job prospects attractive for graduates. Once they have completed the program, which utilizes a blend of online and hands-on training over two semesters, graduates will receive CTS credits through their high school and pre-employment trade credits through Olds College.

  17. DUAL CREDIT CREDENTIALED PATHWAYS A pathway is a selection of courses to give students the opportunity to explore and acquire the attitudes, skills and knowledge for future careers that are relevant to their interests. Pathways can work toward goals that may include university, college, apprentice training, or moving directly into the workforce. Credentialed pathways are a series of specific courses selected to help the student achieve a credential or credit awarded by a recognized community or industry organization or post-secondary institution. This document has been provided to assist teachers in the delivery and completion of CTS credentialed pathways in Alberta schools. All credential/journeyperson opportunities are external to Alberta Education, and it is the responsibility of the student/teacher/school to ensure that the requirements of the credentialing organization have been addressed.

  18. DUAL CREDIT COURSE COMPLETION SUMMARY Note: Students may complete a course than once in a school year. There, the number of course completions may be inflated. “Course Completion” does not mean a student has passed a course. IT a student has a final mark on a record it is considered a completion.
