Aboriginal Teacher Education Program

About

ATEP is a teacher education program working to improve the educational success of Aboriginal children.

ATEP works towards developing a greater understanding of the Aboriginal culture and perspective on teaching and learning, primarily in schools where Aboriginal children are learning. Our goal is to improve the educational success of Aboriginal children by increasing the number of Aboriginal teachers and teachers with an understanding of Aboriginal culture and perspectives in communities in northern Alberta.

Community Based Partnerships

The program exists because of close partnerships with other academic institutions and communities throughout Alberta, including Northern Lakes College, Portage College, University nuhelot’įne thaiyots’į nistameyimâkanak Blue Quills and Maskwacis Cultural College.
