Description The Bridge to Teaching program provides a route for passionate and experienced foreign-trained teachers to gain the training required to transfer their skills and begin working in Alberta's schools. The program offers intensive and accelerated learning in education: participants learn to teach the Alberta Program of Studies in ways that engage students, and gain insights into assessing student progress in fair, formative and summative ways. The program also explores how expectations of teachers vary between Alberta and other jurisdictions and countries. Offered full time over one year, the program includes two school-based practicums.
