The Government of Alberta has announced up to $4M in grants to support dual credit learning experiences for students in grades 10-12. Schools can use the grants to offer dual credit courses – which will count towards both a high school diploma and a postsecondary credential – in topics such as health care, trades, agriculture, and business administration. $1M of the funding will go towards supporting new or existing dual credit programming, while $3M will go towards the purchase of new equipment or facility upgrades to support programming. “We are working to create a more integrated education system that better meets the needs of students, industry and institutions,” said AB Minister of Advanced Education Demetrios Nicolaides. “Dual credit learning opportunities empower high school students to begin their post-secondary education with relevant, recognized skills and training.” AB| Nation Talk| Red Deer News Now Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
