Alberta Education permits school authorities to develop off-campus education programs and courses in accordance with prescribed guidelines and procedures. Such programs allow junior and senior high school students to investigate a variety of career opportunities.
They also allow senior high school students to gain practical experience as they apply and expand their knowledge, skills and attitudes in contexts that will assist them in making wise decisions regarding their future education, training and employment upon leaving senior high school and allow for the smooth transition from school to work and/or post-secondary institutions.
- The Off-campus Education Handbook (2019) provides guidance for implementing off-campus education programs and supports school authorities in offering a safe and caring off-campus education experience for all students participating in these programs.
- The off-campus education coordinator, in collaboration with the student’s employer, has the responsibility to submit complete documentation to both the WCB fax line 780-427-5863 and the Alberta Education email firstname.lastname@example.org within 72 hours of a reported incident.
