Clearview’s Educational Assistants Complete Another Year With Red Deer College!

Clearview and Red Deer College have partnered up to provide additional training and supports for Clearview's Educational Assistants, building even more capacity to support students.

Clearview has 5 Educational Assistants who have participated in and successfully completed the Red Deer College/Clearview Public Schools initiative. The course was entitled “Introduction to Classroom Support”. If the participants decide to pursue their Educational Assistant (EA) Certificate, this course will be counted as one credit towards it. Red Deer College offers the Educational Assistant program over a one-year period providing an EA Certificate through on-campus and distance distance learning classes. Students may enroll for full-time or part-time study.

Clearview's Educational Assistants had 5 full days with a Red Deer College instructor. For 3 out of the 5 class dates, the EAs came together with the instructor at Red Deer College during Clearview’s scheduled professional development days.

“We are delighted that our Educational Assistants had this learning opportunity with Red Deer College,” said Grant Gosse, Director of Inclusive Learning. “This has provided us the opportunity to build capacity with our Educational Assistants enabling them to continue the excellent support they provide to our students on a daily basis. Staff are the first resource in ensuring Clearview students succeed.”
