Advanced Education looking for Working Group Members

The ministry of Advanced Education through the Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT) Apprenticeship Delivery and Industry Support Services (ADISS) unit is conducting assessment model research from apprenticeship jurisdictions, other education/training systems and a variety of professions/occupations from across the world to evaluate their suitability for Alberta’s apprenticeship system.

AIT is forming a working group/committee to examine assessment strategies and provide advice and recommendations to strengthen connections in the areas of education and certification. The working group will consist of approximately 20 to 24 individuals, 12-14 from post-secondary institutes, with the remainder of committee members coming from industry, and government. 

As an overwhelming amount of interest in the Assessment Research Project (ARP) is expected, potential candidates are being asked to complete and return the application form to chris.robertson@gov.ab.ca before August 1, 2023. The application is designed to establish and select a diverse group of individuals with the goal of confirming committee members and the date for our first initial meeting before the end of summer. The time commitment will be approximately 4-6 hours per month or as needed with the project expected to last 18 to 24 months.

Only those selected through the application process will be contacted with the project’s future meeting dates.
