May 1, 2019

Bow Valley College and Saskatchewan Polytechnic have entered into a multi-year agreement to embed essential skills supports into apprenticeship, applied certificate, and certificate programs to improve learning outcomes for carpentry and electrical students. A SaskPolytech release states that the initiative aims to identify and eliminate any skills gaps that students and apprentices might have in the early stages of their programs. “Improving essential skills is one way to ensure carpentry and electrical apprentices and students will succeed in training and the workforce,” said Paul Carter, SaskPolytech’s Dean for the Schools of Construction and Transportation. “We are excited to partner with Bow Valley College on this innovative programming.” SaskPolytech (SK | AB)
