Alberta's government is excited to be launching the Work-Integrated Learning Industry Voucher pilot program to expand work-integrated learning opportunities for post-secondary students. In partnership with industry, employers, and post-secondary institutions, we're investing $3.6 million to support approximately 650 paid student work placements over the next three years.
We have partnered with Technology Alberta, Alberta Construction Association, and BioAlberta to create more opportunities for students to learn hands-on from experts in their field and build the job-ready skills they need to succeed.
Expanding work-integrated learning opportunities is a flagship initiative under Alberta 2030, with the ultimate goal of offering every student in Alberta a work-integrated learning opportunity. This initiative is another exciting step forward for Alberta post-secondary!
