“Career and technology studies (CTS) is a provincially authorized curriculum for Alberta secondary schools designed on a pathways model to offer flexible programming using 1-credit courses. The course structure of CTS enables schools to design unique programs that meet the needs of students and draw on community resources.
The CTS program is designed to develop skills that senior high school students can apply in their daily lives when preparing for entry into the workplace or for further learning opportunities. Through the CTS program students are provided with opportunities to personalize their learning, identify and explore their interests, manage transitions between high school and the workplace or post-secondary, and develop the attitudes and behaviours that people need to participate and progress in today’s dynamic world of work.” (Alberta Education, Career & Technology Studies)
NOTE: If you are a CTS teacher from northern Alberta, then please contact the Northern AB CTS Centre in Red Deer College.
