YTC Indigenous Social Work Diploma program gains full ACSW accreditation

January 12, 2022
Yellowhead Tribal College has announced that its Indigenous Social Work Diploma (ISWD) program has received full accreditation from the Alberta College of Social Workers (ACSW). The ISWD program underwent a rigorous self-evaluation as well as an independent peer review, and demonstrated compliance with ACSW’s accreditation standards. The process was underway for several years, with a site visit occurring in March 2021. “This achievement is evidence of the hard work and sacrifice of past and present program leaders, staff, and students over many years – as well as their outstanding competence, and commitment to excellence,” said Yellowhead Tribal Council CEO Laverne Arcand. “It opens doors of opportunity for our students and graduates; and enables us to serve our peoples more and more effectively.” YTC | Release (AB)
