Lethbridge College and Thompson Rivers University are each providing high school students from their regions with the opportunity to gain new experiences. Lethbridge has launched the Introduction to the Trades Dual Credit Pathway Program, through which students from six southern Alberta school district can learn about 12 trades and earn credits toward their high school diploma and postsecondary education. Students learn through asynchronous and in-person learning, as well as hands-on experiences during eight college visits. TRU has partnered with SHAD Canada to provide Grade 10 and 11 students with a summer enrichment program focused on STEAM. Students will work in small groups to design a solution to a real-world problem and will gain a hands-on understanding of the area’s history.
