Try-A-Trade Take-Out

Try-A-Trade® Take-Out will launch on November 2nd. Stay tuned for more information on how to register your school!

Try-A-Trades® and Try-A-Skills have become a foundational component of Skills Canada Alberta programs. More than 50 hands-on activities are available for students to try at the Provincial Skills Canada Competition each year, giving students the opportunity to test drive multiple careers in one day. Our Try-A-Trade® activities have become so popular, we started adding additional stand-alone events to our calendar.

This year in partnership with various industry and education leaders, we will be offering Try-A-Trade® Take-Out! Teachers can order kits for different activities, and students can continue to experience something new and discover skills and interests they never knew they had. Each Try-A-Trade® kit will include necessary materials to complete the activity, as well as instructions and tutorial videos where needed.

For Industry Partners

Try-A-Trades® and Try-A-Skills are your way of engaging students, transporting them to your industry and inviting students to sample one, or a handful, of tangible skills safely practiced in day-to-day on the job activities.They open minds, break barriers and demonstrate enthusiasm and professionalism that leave a lasting impression- fueling the desire for students to branch out and explore the endless opportunities that were once unknown.
