At present, Yellowhead Tribal College is leading an initiative to create an Indigenous Languages Assessment process for transfer to, at most, 30 University of Alberta credits for the Secondary Education Program.

The University and its partner, Yellowhead Tribal College, have collaborated on this opportunity to increase the availability of language teachers.

Once completed, students will be able to receive a bursary to begin a teacher education bridging route.
