AB announces new supports for ECE development, increased enrolment capacity for free orientation course

The Government of Alberta has announced several new measures focused on increasing the number of certified early childhood educators (ECEs) in the province. The enrolment capacity of a free level 1 child-care orientation course has been increased from 4,000 to 10,000 spaces. Any Albertan is eligible to enrol in the course, regardless of if they are currently working in a childcare program or not. AB also announced initiatives such as the development of a new competency-based approach to certification, continued work with Advanced Education on creating more in-person and virtual spaces in postsecondary programs, and modernization of level 1 ECE orientation course content.
