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 4,601 square-foot facility, facilitators provide unique, hands-on opportunities for youth in Grades 9 and 10 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 and self-reflection about career fit. Through partnerships with Calgary's two school boards, SAIT has developed a program that aligns not only with careers, but also Alberta Education's Program of Studies (in math, language arts, science and career and technologies foundations) and critical competencies.
This experience is open to all schools.
