CNA says it plans to make teaching a top priority after NL review

May 3, 2017

The College of the North Atlantic says that its top priority is improving educational standards after a recent report said that the school had not appropriately addressed this issue in recent years. CBC reports that last week, the Newfoundland and Labrador government released a modernization plan finding a lack of emphasis on teaching and learning that persisted for several years, in addition to courses not being updated to match the job market, campus infrastructure not being up to standard, and a lack of a coherent management system. “We really have to modernize our teaching, we have to be prepared to be able to teach the workforce of today and tomorrow for the jobs of tomorrow,” said interim CNA president Elizabeth Kidd.
