Expand your Career Opportunities!
The Certificate of Achievement in Foundational Learning (CAFL) program is part of a comprehensive education and training strategy designed to enhance learners’ skills and academic credentials as a means to expand their educational and career opportunities. The program is intended for students who have experienced barriers impeding their learning, and who wish to further their education in a supportive learning environment. Through personalized advising and instruction, the CAFL program equips students with the essential knowledge and in-demand skills required by employers and opens doors to future educational and career pathways.
Upon completion of the CAFL program, students may be eligible to enrol in any number of career-oriented certificates or diplomas offered at GPRC or other educational institutions, and will receive a Certificate of Achievement in Foundational Learning from GPRC.
An individual must be 18 years of age or older at the start of the program, have a limited range of academic competencies and/or credentials, have insufficient English language skills to pursue training or employment in their field of choice, and have a demonstrated need for workplace essential and applied skills training.
Applicants will be selected in the order that they are received. Students must provide their Alberta Education Transcript, or equivalent, in support of the pre-requisite for a limited range of academic competencies and English language skills. English and Mathematics placement assessments may be required for placement at the appropriate levels in the program.
Students may be eligible to receive income support as a full-time learner through the Alberta Works program. This funding may assist with tuition, books and supplies, childcare, and a living allowance. Please contact Financial Aid to discuss funding options.
