Since the late 1970's, the Government of Alberta has invested in community-based adult learning across the province. Through the Community Adult Learning Program (CALP), Alberta Advanced Education supports the delivery of adult learning opportunities, learner support services, and other initiatives that foster the advancement of community adult learning in Alberta.
This includes supporting the development of training, curriculum and resources that support CALP staff and volunteers to be able to meet the ever-changing needs of adult learners across the province, with a particular emphasis on Literacy and Foundational Learning needs. The Professional Development Advisory Committee (PDAC) continues to be instrumental to identifying PD priorities and system needs as they relate to training and support.
A number of resources and trainings have been developed in recent years, through the CALP PD Grant. You can learn more about these projects by exploring the menu items for this page.
