Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) is an off-campus community based collaborative cohort program. The Aboriginal Teacher Education Program 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.  ATEP, working collectively with our collaborative colleges, is providing the final 60 credits of university course work required for a Bachelor of Education in Elementary Education. 

Current Collaborative Programs

  • 2014-2016 A collaborative program with Northern Lakes College. 
  • 2014-2016 A collaborative program with Portage Lake College in Cold Lake and Lac La Biche.

Faculty Mission

The Faculty of Education is committed to the discovery and dissemination of knowledge about teaching and learning. We promote the view that to be a professional educator is to continue to question, to reflect, to seek knowledge, and to be open to change.
