Program Summary

The Saskatoon Industry Education Council partnered with the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission to develop our middle years Practical and Applied Arts Kits, Skill Sets. These kits aid in delivering Skilled Trades-related curriculum and provide teachers with the resources to deliver hands-on learning opportunities and career exploration activities for students. Each project identifies covered curricular outcomes and is broken down into lessons with step-by-step instructions, links to online resources, student learning activities, and assessment techniques.
