Alberta’s United Conservative Party will implement a series of new measures to help high school students prepare for good-paying jobs in high-demand fields such as tech, manufacturing, construction, energy, and health. These measures will help secure a bright future for young Albertans while moving our economy forward.
Under the UCP, Alberta’s economy is booming. To continue fueling that growth, Alberta needs to ensure skilled workers are available to fill the jobs needed to keep our economy moving forward.
“If Alberta can’t get the skilled workers it needs, and soon, our economic growth will be impacted,” said Adriana LaGrange, UCP candidate for Red Deer-North. “Young Albertans are smart, ambitious, and ready. They want to build a brighter future for themselves and our province. A re-elected UCP government will ensure they have the supports and resources they need to do just that.”
If re-elected, the UCP will implement key recommendations from the Career Education Task Force. For younger Albertans to build a brighter future for themselves and our province, the UCP will also introduce a number of new measures.
Promoting Career Pathways
Expanding Funding for Career and Technology (CTS) and Mobile CTS/ Career and Technology Foundations (CTF) for rural school boards
Increase Access to Off-Campus Education
“The UCP believes Albertans deserve a world-class education system that sets students up for success by ensuring they have the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in life and work,” concluded LaGrange. “As Alberta’s economy continues to expand and diversify, we will ensure students can contribute and grow right alongside. There’s no surer guarantee of a secure, bright future than being able to do something meaningful you love for work. A re-elected UCP government will continue moving our economy forward to ensure more young Albertans can do just that.”
