FSC invests $4.3M in ACA, UNB to support early childhood education

November 25, 2020
The Future Skills Centre (FSC) will be investing $4.3M in two Atlantic Canada partnerships. The Atlantic Colleges Atlantique will receive $3.45M for its College Transformation des Collèges project, which focuses on skills gaps in early childhood education that need to be addressed by the college system. The University of New Brunswick’s NouLAB will receive $900K for its “Early Childhood Education Lab” project, which evaluates and enhances the training received or sought out by early childhood educators. “By focusing on challenges that exist at the level of a single profession and at a wider level in our educational systems, respectively, the projects are primed to deliver findings that we hope can be applied to other entities both within and beyond Atlantic Canada,” said FSC Executive Director Pedro Barata.
