Opportunity for Albertans to build future of teaching

The Task Force for Teaching Excellence will build Alberta by exploring new ways to support educators and ensure every student benefits from an excellent teacher.

Through Inspiring Education and other initiatives, Albertans have told government that, as the education system changes, educators will need to be more flexible, innovative and learner-centered than ever before.

The Task Force for Teaching Excellence will explore new directions for supporting excellence in teachers and other educators. Through consultations with parents, students, teachers, support staff, school leaders, stakeholders, community and business representatives and all interested Albertans, the task force will provide recommendations for the future of the teaching profession in Alberta.

"The task force will make recommendations on how we can better support Alberta's teachers to ensure that every student has the best chance at success. Their consultations will give all Albertans the chance to help build the future of our children's classrooms and opportunities for learning.”

-Jeff Johnson, Minister of Education

The Task Force for Teaching Excellence is made up of a wide range of Albertans, including students, parents, teachers and academics, in addition to four government MLAs. The Task Force is chaired by Dr. Glenn Feltham.

Details on the consultations can be found online.
