Enhancing the CTS program is integral to transforming the educational experience of high school students. CTS programs create more flexible, inclusive and personalized learning opportunities.
CTS Apprenticeship Pathways must be taught in an Alberta Education approved facility. The facility is the responsibility of the school authority and must be equipped to industry standards to deliver the CTS Apprenticeship Pathway.
All required courses in a CTS Apprenticeship Pathway must be taught by a journeyperson for that trade; i.e., an individual holding a trade certificate recognized in Alberta.
For trades supported by Individual Learning Modules (ILMs) from Apprenticeship and Industry Training, the ILMs must be utilized as a primary resource for the delivery of instruction. All students must have access to their own set of ILMs.
For trades where ILMs have not been developed, books and materials listed on the Trades & Occupations List must be utilized.
Alberta Education revises apprenticeship occupational areas (i.e., programs of study) when a course outline for a trade is published and implemented by Innovation and Advanced Education (IAE). Course outlines are reviewed and revised to align with current industry practice.
