Historical Study of the Certificate in Adult Education Program for
Stalker, Jacqueline
The historical evolution of teacher training requirements in postsecondary vocational education in Manitoba, Canada was investigated. Specific emphasis was on the Certificate in Adult Education (CAE) that community college instructors must obtain within a specified period of time. The CAE program was divided into distinct chronological stages and, subsequently, analyzed under the categories of product, process, and mission. The three eras were (1) the establishment phase (1971 to 1976), (2) the installation stage (1976 to 1980), and (3) the assessment stage (1980 to present). Analyses showed that the CAE program had a small, and rather insignificant impact on the product, or the quality of instruction. In regard to process, the value of the CAE program to the institutions and the province was seen to be more in its existence as a concession to a need than in its effect. The mission analysis yielded the conclusion that the provincial government perpetuates the status quo in postsecondary education by allocating proportionally more priority to elementary, secondary, and university education than to its postsecondary, adult, and continuing education division. (Appendixes, making up approximately one-third of the paper, include the CAE philosophy and description, CAE course content, and criteria for CAE instructor selection.) (YLB)
