This section is responsible for the regulation of
both public and private post-secondary training. One of the main roles in regulating the
institutions is to fulfill the Department of Educations obligation with respect to
the acts and regulations governing the operation of post-secondary training facilities
within Newfoundland and Labrador. Management and program consultants assess provincial
training needs, revise existing provincial programs, conduct program development, design
and implement program evaluation strategies, analyze program proposals and initiate and
conduct research into instructional methodologies and technologies. As well, they provide
liaison with other government departments and outside agencies/businesses on a provincial,
national and international level.
The post-secondary training section also monitors private
training institutions with regard to their operation, staffing, and program offerings. It
has developed a concise policy and procedure document which provides clearly
defined guidelines for the registration and operation of private training institutions
within the province.
