AB provides $4M funding boost for creation, development of dual credit courses

The Government of Alberta has announced that it is providing a funding boost of $4M to school authorities to support the creation and development of dual credit courses. School authorities can apply for start-up grants or enhancement grants, with a total of 61 grants being allocated. The grants will support the development of dual credit courses for the 2022-23 school year. “Dual credit programs help students make meaningful transitions to post-secondary education, trade designations or the workplace,” said AB Minister of Education Adriana LaGrange. “Expanding on these opportunities is vital to improving high school completion rates and building a qualified, educated and engaged workforce.” AB Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
