Teacher Resources

Alberta Education in partnership with the ATA and other provincial organizations have designed Teacher Quality and Leadership Quality Standards.

“The revision of this resource, the Teaching Quality Standard (TQS) and the complementary development of a school Leadership Quality Standard (LQS) (principal, vice-principal) and subsequent Superintendent Leadership Quality Standard (superintendent, associate superintendent) will heighten public assurance about the quality of education in Alberta and emphasize our shared commitment to develop the conditions necessary for optimal student learning for every student in every Alberta school.” (Teaching Quality and school Leadership Quality Standards - Alberta Education, January 17, 2018)

In the Teaching Quality Standard document there are specific standards regarding the professional practice expectations for meeting the needs of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students.

The following resources from various sources provide teachers with support for meeting the Teaching Quality Standards.
