Grades 9 to 12 Welding Technology: Manitoba Curriculum Framework of Outcomes—Draft 2015

Curriculum Implementation Dates

During voluntary implementation, teachers have the option of teaching the entire new draft curriculum as soon as Manitoba Education and Training releases it on the Technology Education website.

They also have the option of teaching the courses from the previous curriculum. Teachers who implement courses before system-wide implementation need to ensure that students who are already taking courses from the previous curriculum achieve all SLOs with a minimum of redundancy.

Voluntary implementation of all Welding Technology courses began in the fall of 2013 and will continue until their respective system-wide implementation dates.

Welding Technology
Curriculum Implementation Dates
Date System-Wide Implementation
Fall 2014 Grade 9
Fall 2015 Grade 10
Fall 2016 Grade 11
Fall 2017 Grade 12

Under system-wide implementation, all teachers in Manitoba teach the new curriculum and use the new course codes. Teachers will no longer be able to use the previous course codes. Course codes are found in the Subject Table Handbook: Technology Education.
