Are there young women in your school who would benefit from a fun-filled day with a trades and technology focus that will open their eyes to the career possibilities available to them in their future?
Skills Canada Alberta is excited to present the 14th Annual GETT Conference! Held in conjunction with the 2016 Provincial Skills Canada Competition and Skill City. GETT highlights endless career opportunities in the trades and technologies.
High School girls will talk with certified tradeswomen, apprentices and technology experts that have pursued non-traditional careers. Their stories, experiences and knowledge will motivate students to open their minds to the diverse career paths available in today's most dynamic industries.
This valuable, interactive and fun-filled day includes dozens of TRY-A-TRADE® hands-on demonstrations, entertaining keynote speakers, exciting team activities, tours of the competition areas, fun contests, great prize draws and much more. Students will see first hand the success they can find in careers ranging from computer animation to carpentry, tv/video production to baking, and sheet metal to plumbing.
To participate in Skills Canada Alberta programs, your school must first become a Skills School. Once your school is a Skills School, teachers register their students for the conference by logging into our portal. Registration for this conference includes a fee of $50/school and $25/student.
