Countdown to Provincials (May 8 & 9, 2024):21 days

Girls Exploring Trades & Technologies

The Girls Exploring Trades & Technologies (GETT) program is a celebration of women in trade and technology careers. Throughout the GETT program, high school girls will gain a new perspective and be motivated to open their minds to the diverse career paths available to them.

GETT in the Classroom

Students will get the chance to test-drive careers and learn new skills through 4 different hands-on Try-A-Trade® Take-Out kits. Kits focus on careers in Sheet Metal, Woodworking, Aesthetics, and Refrigeration and include instructions and female-led tutorial videos. Each kit will include necessary materials and safety equipment for 25 students to complete all 4 activities.

Teachers can apply to receive the kits by completing a short application form on our website on February 7th from 8:30am-10:30am. 10 schools across Alberta will be chosen based on the submitted application and needs across the province.

The application for GETT Try-A-Trade® kits is now closed.
