About the Position
Lethbridge College offers a student-centered environment that provides practical and innovative learning experiences.

The Centre defines itself through excellence in teaching and learning, fostering curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking in all activities: development and renewal of courses and programs, approaches to teaching and learning, and scholarly activity and community engagement by faculty, staff and students.

Within CBAS, Lakeshore Campus is located in the Lethbridge Correctional Centre. Lakeshore Campus provides programming in three educational streams: Academic Studies, Personal Development and Job Employment Training. Each stream focuses on a different aspect of offender education and development yet function together to provide the highest quality education available to incarcerated learners. Lethbridge College ensures the quality and integrity of course curriculum, the experience and expertise of the instructors and the effectiveness of personal, academic, and employment skills so they can live and contribute successfully in society and avoid the negative lifestyle and behaviors that can lead back to incarceration.

CBAS is currently seeking applicants for the position of a Home Maintenance and Repairs instructor to teach incarcerated students within the Job Employment Training Program.
