Selkirk College joins in the Canada-wide celebration of Co-op Education Week. Co-op Education has been an integral part of education at Selkirk College for more than 25 years. Each year, over 300 students take part in the paid work experience that has them honing their learned skills and making valuable work connections.
Rewarding education and employment are just around the corner. The Selkirk College Career & Education Fair brings students and community members together with employers and post-secondary programs that will help them along the pathway to success. The annual event takes place Tuesday, March 7 on the Castlegar Campus.
Partnering with Co-op Education & Employment Services to hire a co-op student from Selkirk College brings countless paybacks to employers throughout the province. Employers benefit from a connection to highly motivated and capable students in a variety of disciplines that are flexible and productive workers.
In late-January, first-year SROAM students had the opportunity to visit Selkirk Snowcat Skiing to complete their Avalanche Skills Training Level 1 (AST I) course and capture an inside look at an operation that brings guests from across the planet for the ultimate wilderness ski experience.
