Career Exploration Centre
The Career Exploration Centre (CEC) at SAIT is a unique, experiential, learner-centred facility for youth to get a better understanding of careers, the career exploration process, and applied education — preparing them to make informed learning and career pathway choices in high school and beyond.
While in the 1,400 square-foot facility, facilitators provide unique, hands-on opportunities for youth to investigate career options through experiential activities such as working on the front half of a car or playing an electrical-grid board game.
The activities initiate early conversations about program fit. Through partnerships with Calgary's two school boards, SAIT has developed a program that aligns not only with the institution's offerings, but also Alberta Education's Program of Studies in math, language arts, science and career and technologies foundations.
This experience is currently open to schools in the Calgary Board of Education, Calgary Catholic Separate School District, Foothills School District and Rocky View School District.
