Safety in Schools courses offer many benefits

The Safety in Schools program is designed to meet the needs of students in any learning stream. While our primary goal is to provide vital safety training to students before they enter the workforce, there are a number of additional ways that Safety in Schools courses benefit students.

How these courses benefit different students depends on individual career paths and learning streams.

Curriculum Alignment

When developing our online library, Safety in Schools Foundation worked with Alberta Education to ensure that our course offerings align with the curriculum outcomes for the Career and Technology Studies (CTS) learning stream.

Safety in Schools courses can be used to produce the required learning outcomes for HCS3000, HCS3010 and AGR3000 and some of the learning outcomes for other CTS courses.
