About ATEP

Aboriginal Teacher Education Program (ATEP) is an off-campus community based collaborative cohort program. The Aboriginal Teacher Education Program works towards developing a greater understanding of the Aboriginal culture and perspective on teaching and learning, primarily in schools where Aboriginal children are learning.  Our goal is to improve the educational success of Aboriginal children by increasing the number of Aboriginal teachers and teachers with an understanding of Aboriginal culture and perspectives in communities in northern Alberta.  ATEP, working collectively with our collaborative colleges, is providing the final 60 credits of university course work required for a Bachelor of Education in Elementary Education.
