Our goal is to provide, in partnership with the community, high quality education for adult learners so that they can develop the skills, knowledge and attitude essential for successful participation in society.
Adult Learning Centres are located in 20 communities throughout Frontier School Division. We offer a wide selection of courses to help participants obtain the Mature Student High School Diploma, and other educational goals. Since the programs' inception in 1992, over 1000 adult learners graduated with a high school diploma.
The goal of Frontier School Division's Adult Education program is to:
- Provide a positive education experience that encourages further education pursuits and promotes life-long learning,
- Broaden and deepen appreciation and participation in the community's intellectual, social and cultural life,
- Acquire specific skills necessary for personal and economic well-being,
- Offers participants the opportunity to obtain a Mature Student High School Diploma,
- Provide individuals with an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in occupations so that they make informed educational and career decisions, and increase the opportunities for future training and employment.
The Division will provide educational opportunities enabling people to obtain the requisite education, training, and skills to meet the changing needs of the workplace and to enhance their participation and effectiveness as citizens.
Finding Pathways to Success - Building Construction Program
In 2005, Frontier School Division launched the Building Construction Program, an innovative program which combines and Mature Student High School Diploma with the Level 1 Carpentry certification. The program was developed in partnership with the University College of the North and is supported by Employment Manitoba and the Apprenticeship Branch as part of the Ministry of Jobs and the Economy.
Since the program started in 2005, it has had participants from the following locations:
- Cranberry Portage
- Flin Flon
- Grand Rapids
- Leaf Rapids
- Lynn Lake
- Moose Lake
- Pine Creek
This programming has also led to the apprenticing of students completing their Level I assisting them along the pathway to becoming a Joyrneyperson Carpenter. This has provided valuable employment skills and work experience that can be directly credited toward the hours required for the next level of apprenticeship.
This BCP has also indirectly assisted with the development of greater Technical Vocational opportunities within the Division, especially the creation of the Northern Technical Centre at FCI in Cranberry Portage.
