Trade & Tech Days

Partnership Opportunity!

 

Trade and Tech Days with Skills Canada Saskatchewan 

This new program is a great way for Saskatchewan industry to join us as we reach students from across the province to show them through fun and interactive activities, the great potential careers in the trade and tech sectors. We want you to help us spark their interest.  

Students from grades 9 and up will have the opportunity to hear success stories from Skills Canada Saskatchewan Alumni, including the Executive Director, Jayden Leister. His story started in 2009 when he won a medal at the Skills Canada Saskatchewan Provincial Competition, he then moved on to compete at the Skills Canada National Competition in 2012 and won yet again, which allowed him some amazing international experiences competing both at WorldSkills America’s and WorldSkills Leipzig 2013.  

Partners will also have the opportunity to address the audience in a fun and exciting way to get them interested in your sector of expertise. From there, partners can set up Try-A-Trade® and Technology activity for kids to get hands on and have fun throughout the day!  

 

Program objectives include: 

Skills Canada Saskatchewan would like to ensure we are reaching communities across the province with our programming. Our goal with Trade and Tech Days, working with partners, is to bring awareness to youth about the many opportunities in the trade and tech sectors, help them learn about the education pathway and career opportunities.
