A long-standing goal of the Alberta Teachers’ Association is to continue to advance teaching as a profession. Teaching is the specialized application of knowledge, skills and attitudes designed to provide a unique service to meet the educational needs of the individual and of society.
To ensure the consistent delivery of education in Alberta, teachers and leaders are expected to uphold the ethical and legal responsibilities created by the Government of Alberta and the Alberta Teachers’ Association.
