Edmonton, Alberta — Skills Canada Alberta is spreading the word about its free field trip offer to schools across the province.
The organization is inviting educators to bring their classes to its provincial Skills competition in Edmonton on May 3 and 4, where competitors will go head-to-head against other youth in their trade-of-focus for a coveted bronze, silver or gold medal.
Further, the skilled trades advocacy organization is also inviting classes to its ‘Skills City’, an interactive village showcasing a variety of opportunities in Alberta’s trades and ‘Try-a-Trade’ events that allow students to “test-drive careers” via unique, hands-on kits.
Skills Canada Alberta also says bus subsidies are available.
This is such a fantastic opportunity for young students to see what types of trades are out there. So many things that young students are completely in the dark about. As an adult, I am still mesmerized by the available opportunities that are out there.
