Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has established Program Descriptions for college programs of instruction which do not operate under a specific provincial Program Standard. The Program Description typically describes the program purpose (a brief description of the program, potential employment opportunities and general admission requirements) and program goals (similar to program-level learning outcomes, which guide the curriculum).
