Red Deer Polytechnic is committed to providing opportunities that enrich the professional and personal growth of employees. These opportunities may occur through continuing education and lifelong learning.
RDP provides numerous general professional development (PD) opportunities for faculty and staff. This includes hosting dynamic speakers and other professional development activities throughout each year.
In addition, funding is also available for eligible employees to engage in professional development opportunities. These opportunities may include pursuing advanced degrees, attending conferences and workshops, participating in webinars or seminars, and more. This supports employees as they learn about trends and best practices, while also increasing their knowledge in various subjects to best support our students and communities.
Eligibility and funding for professional development varies depending on bargaining unit affiliation and the terms and conditions of employment. To learn more about professional development for faculty, view Faculty PD.
