August 17, 2018

The Alberta government has appointed a new provincial panel to help better prepare students for a future that will be increasingly driven by technology, reports the Calgary Herald. The Talent Advisory Council on Technology has been tasked with coming up with recommendations to ensure Alberta’s education and training programs are producing employees that can obtain good, high-quality jobs in a changing economy. “This could mean the creation of new programs or the expansion of existing programs,” said government spokesperson Cheryl Oates. “Short-term skills training, diplomas, certificates, degrees and graduate degrees may all be impacted, if the need exists.” Calgary Herald
