CTF stands for Career & Technology Foundations and is a program that was created to encourage an engaging and holistic learning process that results in the development of a product, performance, or service. CTF can integrate other program outcomes by identifying cross-curricular connections, as well as literacy and numeracy skills. The CTF program creates an environment where students have the opportunity to explore interests and passions, while developing skills and competencies which make connections to career possibilities. While working on their CTF projects, students are encouraged to explore any combination of the Career and Technology Studies (CTS) outlined within the Alberta Program of Studies. In the end, students who participate in the CTF project work toward a shared goal in response to a challenge. Finally, the process involves bridging the community and the school to create an authentic learning experience.
