Description:Drawing on the Werklund School of Education’s strong foundation of innovation, and on the strengths of an excellent undergraduate program, the two-year Community-Based Bachelor of Education After-Degree addresses issues of access and equity by providing an additional pathway for students to obtain their Education degree. This program is unique to Alberta, and allows students in rural and remote areas to remain in their communities for the majority of their studies, while receiving excellent instruction and advisory support from the University of Calgary.

While students are able to remain in, or near, their rural and remote community for the majority of the program, they do take courses on campus each Summer, providing them with the opportunity to work with their cohort in a face-to-face environment. Students also attend an Orientation in their first year, and are afterward invited to various program sessions, allowing them to connect with the Werklund School of Education.

The Community-Based program was developed to attract students interested in pursuing a BEd, but unable to commit to a residency-based program. It allows students to gain teaching experience in their local communities through their Field Placements. The program thus hopes to mitigate the high turnover rate of teachers in rural and remote areas.
