Our Strategic Partners

Alberta Skilled Trades and Professions

Since the late 1970's, the Government of Alberta has supported community-based adult learning across the province.  Through the Community Adult Learning Program (CALP), Advanced Education invests approximately $18 million each year to support the delivery of adult literacy and foundational learning, professional learning for staff and volunteers of grant recipients and other initiatives that foster community adult learning in Alberta.

 

As a key component of Alberta's adult learning system, the Community Adult Learning Program supports a network of organizations to deliver part-time, nonformal literacy and foundational learning opportunities to adults.  CALP's vision is to change lives through adult foundational learning in connected communities.

Lamont County

Lamont County has been approved by Advanced Education to act as the legal administrator for CALC and receive a Community Adult Learning Program grant on our behalf.  As Lamont County employees, CALC staff have access to office space, meeting rooms and storage space.  They also have computer access and use of office equipment, with consultation on administrative matters as needed. 

 

Further to that, the Community Adult Learning Council Board as a committee of the Legal Host, is responsible for delivery of adult literacy and foundational learning programs, along with the development and submission of three-year grant applications and annual reports
