Neutral Hills Community Adult Learning
The Neutral Hills Community Adult Learning Council is run by the Neutral Hills Community Adult Learning Society (NHCALS).
To meet the community learning needs we offer a variety of programming and events including post-secondary, workplace skill and general interest courses.
Alberta Innovation and Advanced Education provides funding to more than 80 Community Adult Learning Councils across the province. These councils offer part-time non-credentialed learning opportunities that respond to their communities’ unique needs. These may include opportunities in adult literacy, adult English as a Second Language (ESL), employability enhancement, addressing community issues, as well as other lifelong learning opportunities.
Community Adult Learning Councils (CALCs) address the part-time, non-credit learning needs of adults within specified geographic boundaries. Currently 82 in number, these unique councils consist of representatives of the local community who work together to meet the goals of the Government of Alberta’s Community Adult Learning Program:: To improve the accessibility of learning opportunities in Alberta’s communities, especially for those individuals with special needs or barriers to learning. To provide opportunities for Albertans to acquire important foundational skills such as literacy and English as a Second Language. To address education, training and learning gaps in Alberta’s communities. To mobilize community volunteers and other resources in support of learning. To contribute to solving individual and community problems through learning initiatives, in coordination and cooperation with related organizations.
