In this program, students are introduced to intentionally created transition strategies through a variety of program and career options while helping them build their confidence, gain hope for the future, create awareness of prospective careers, and have a support system built in at SAIT to promote their journey to post-secondary.

The goals of the Turning Points program are to help students:

  • explore their interests, passions, and career goals
  • learn about program areas and what SAIT has to offer
  • understand their next steps in future post-secondary opportunities
  • build a greater sense of confidence both academically and personally.
