Career and Technology Studies Overview

General Information

Career and Technology Studies

Iā€™m developing important life skills. Students receive career exposure through CTS courses. They develop life skills and prepare for the workplace or further learning in the industry that interests them. Students create pathways to occupations in common industries from the five CTS clusters.

Course Sequence

1 Transfer from a 10-4 Knowledge and Employability occupational course directly to an intermediate level (2000 series) career and technology studies course may be considered where there is content relevancy and prerequisite requirements are met.

Dual Credit

The Alberta Dual Credit Framework identifies dual credit as programming that is authorized and funded by Alberta Education in which grades 10, 11 or 12 students can earn both high school credits and credits that count toward a post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree, including a journeyperson certificate.

  • High school credits earned count toward course and credit requirements of the Alberta High School Diploma or the Alberta Certificate of High School Achievement.

  • Post-secondary credits earned may count toward a post-secondary certificate, diploma or degree through partial or full completion of post-secondary requirements.

A dual credit pathway is comprised of either single enrolled CTS courses or dual enrolled CTS courses authorized by Alberta Education, as referenced in the Alberta Dual Credit Framework (pp. 7ā€“8). These courses can help students work toward their post-secondary goals or support them as they move directly into the workforce from high school.
