About Learning Network
What is Learning Network Educational Services?
Learning Network Educational Services is one of seven regional consortia in the province of Alberta. The consortia were established to provide professional development and training opportunities, which address the learning needs of school trustees, administrators, teachers, support staff, parents, and school councils in East Central Alberta, for the ultimate purpose of enhancing practice and improving student achievement.
Role of Key Learning Needs

The Learning Network is in continual collaborative conversations with all regional stakeholders and jurisdictions and their K-12 communities identifying and formalizing the key learning needs of each group. These conversations are mutually beneficial for stakeholders, jursdictions and the Learning Network Educational Services.

Learning Network will have an informed basis for planning future professional development opportunities and at the same time will be responsive to stakeholder needs and priorities.
