Career and Technology Studies is a program designed to provide students with a variety of career related course choices. Alberta Education states that the CTS program offers opportunities for students to:

  • develop skills that can be applied in their daily lives, now and in the future
  • refine career-planning skills
  • develop technology-related skills
  • enhance employability skills
  • apply and reinforce learnings developed in other subject areas
  • prepare for transition into adult roles in the family, community, workplace and/or further education.

Features of the revised CTS program:

  • Courses are organized by levels (Introductory, Intermediate, and Advanced), not grades
  • Multiple entry points – not all Intermediate and Advanced level courses have prerequisites
  • A competency-based curriculum
