GNWT wants your input on post-secondary education


The Department of Education Culture and Employment (ECE) is asking the public for feedback on the future of post-secondary education in the Northwest Territories.

“The Government Response to the Aurora College Foundational Review committed to establishing a vision for post-secondary education in the NWT – a common vision to guide future decision-making around education after high school,” a news release from the department states.

Territorial residents are invited to complete the post-secondary education vision survey online or in-person at their local ECE or GSO office. The survey is open until April 23 at 8 a.m.

The territorial government is also co-ordinating a free series of public speakers to “inspire discussion around the future of our post-secondary education system,” the news release states. Seven different speaking events will be held in Fort Smith, Inuvik and Yellowknife this month, with speakers from post-secondary institutions including Dechinta, UAlberta and Université de Hearst.

The vision and goals will form part of the post-secondary education framework that will be released publicly this summer.
