NorQuest receives over $3 million for project on learning opportunities for rural adults

December 7, 2011

The Rural Alberta Development Fund's board of directors has approved $3.2 million in funding to support a collaborative delivery model aimed at boosting access to quality learning for rural adults. Led by NorQuest College, the Collaborative Delivery of Foundational Learning for Rural Learners project will identify the learning needs of adult learners within the institution's stewardship region to better prepare them for PSE or employment opportunities in their communities. Up to a dozen communities will take part in the project by providing learning sites, tutorial and student supports, and in-depth knowledge of the learning needs for adults in their areas. The project is expected to be completed by December 2013. RADF News Release
