Skills Canada Saskatchewan hosts annual Olympic-style skills competitions that provide a forum for secondary, post-secondary and apprentice students to compete in over 30 trade and technology competition areas. Students participate in practical challenges designed to test the skills required in trade and technology occupations.
The philosophy of the skills competitions is:
· To reward students for excellence
· To directly involve industry in evaluating student performance
· To keep training relevant to employers’ needs
Each competition is unique and designed by technical experts from education and industry. Competitions allow students to access the newest technologies and communicate with industry experts who serve as mentors by showing students that the skills they possess are valuable.
The provincial competition categories cover a broad range of trade and technical areas. Categories include: traditional trades, new emerging trades and technologies, and non-traditional or communication areas that do not require acess to preparation with equipment.
Orientation - Thursday, April 3, 2003
Competitions will be held in Regina at SIAST Wascana Campus and other locations to be determined.
**Registration package will be available for download in early 2003.
