When we reduce common financial barriers that stand between our community members and their vocational goals, we're not simply giving local learners a leg up. We're growing a skilled regional workforce that helps support vital industrial sectors. We're diversifying our economy and beginning to break free of the boom/bust cycle. We're becoming better, together.
Taking my Health Care Aide Program was one of the wisest decisions I’ve ever made. The program itself is extremely beneficial in all aspects. I’ve been in this field before and thought I knew all that I needed to know. I was wrong.
By partnering with local industry stakeholders, we seek to ease reliance on taxpayer dollars and ensure the long-term viability of the Zero Fee Tuition Program. Such financial partnerships are critical, and they also help us tailor educational programming to the evolving needs and priorities of the business community.
Through their ongoing support of this unique community catalyst, our industry partners demonstrate their commitment to building a robust and resilient Drayton Valley while reaping the direct benefits of talent retention, labour pool development, corporate goodwill, tax advantages and more.
The Zero Fee Tuition Program facilitates local post-secondary learning opportunities for residents of the Town of Drayton Valley. The Town reserves the right to periodically evaluate the program and its funding criteria. Operation of the Zero Fee Tuition Program is subject to the availability of funding.
