Beginning in the fall of 2015, students in grades 5-9 will be able to participate in Career and Technology Foundations, an optional program being implemented by Alberta Education. The idea is to introduce middle-years students to hands-on learning experiences with real-world applications, providing them with exposure to possible career paths and areas of future study. It is an exciting program being piloted by Pembina North Community School this year, and set to roll out in our PHRD junior high programs next fall.
Last week, several teachers from our school division attended an ERLC PD Session to learn more about CTF. Below is a link to the PowerPoint presentation that was shared with staff at that session.
If you are interested in doing some planning for the new CTF program, we would be very excited to facilitate collaboration between you and other teachers within our school division. Please feel free to contact us. We’d love to be a part of your school’s CTF project.
This blog and resources website has been developed through the work of various AISI coaches in PHRD. The lead collaborative teachers for the 2015/2016 school year, Cheryl Frose, Christine Quong and Tammy Tkachuk will continue to update this site. If you have resources you would like to share or would like to contribute to the blog, please contact us.
