Helping students to make informed decisions is just one of the many reasons that Elk Island Public Schools is excited to once again be partnering with the Educational Liaison Association of Alberta to host the annual Your Future Post-Secondary and Career Fair.

This year’s HYBRID event will take place on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, from 6:30-8:30pm at the Strathcona County Agora located at 401 Festival Lane, Sherwood Park, AB, and online! The in-person event will follow the provincial Restriction Exemption Program, as well as adhere to AHS and local guidelines.

Providing Career Pathway opportunities fosters growth and success for every student by supporting their journey from early learning through high school completion and beyond, and enhances education through communication, engagement and partnerships. Discovering Career Pathways is about building awareness, understanding and readiness that helps students build self-esteem and fulfillment in life.

January 12, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm |Free

Learn about careers in agriculture and the skilled trades in food preparation, such as Cook and Baker.

Agriculture: The agricultural industry is both valuable and critical to our society and remains one of the largest sources of employment in many areas across Alberta and the world. It is an industry that continues to redefine itself and to present ever-evolving career opportunities. Whether it is working as a farmer, harvester, technician for farm equipment, scientist, and so on, there are an amazing number of opportunities for careers.

Careers:  Beekeeper, Horticulturist, Veterinarian, Food Specialist, Seed Producer, Equine Stable Hand, Farmer, Irrigation Specialist, the list “grows” on and on…

Cook: As the industry shifts, and the gender barrier dissipates, the opportunities for women in cooking are better than ever.

The skills that we learn in the culinary arts can be applied to so many different areas in our lives. We learn organization, teamwork, cleanliness, food safety, sanitization practices, as well as the undeniably great skill behind the art of cooking.
