Vocational Training and Education in Alberta. Coombe Lodge Case Study. Information Bank Number 2003.
Marsh, D. T.
This paper describes the provision of vocational education in the Province of Alberta, especially the education provided by Alberta Vocational Centres (AVCs). The paper is organized in two sections. The first, introductory section describes the Province of Alberta and its educational system. The second section focuses on Alberta Vocational Centres which provide education and job training for adults with less than a high school education. It discusses the role of AVCs, and provides a long list of sources of student financial aid. This section then reports a case study of the Lac la Biche AVC which serves largely a Native Canadian population, including its background, campus, organization, and course portfolio. Finally, the paper discusses the role and future direction of AVCs. Appendixes to the report describe a course for community resource workers and provide a form for institutional self-evaluation.
