Lethbridge College

Registration is now Closed

Skills Discovery Day provides a non-competitive and non-threatening introduction to the Skills Canada program, encouraging more students to register for the annual Regional Skills Competition. By providing more students with access to the related college programs, faculty and labs, we can eliminate some of the “fear factor” and establish a realistic view of how participation in the Skills Canada program can be a positive  experience and a support to future career decision making. 

This event can accomodate up to 100 students. Each student will have the opportunity to explore 3 Regional Skills areas throughout the day, including a general introduction to Skills Canada, and a hot lunch. 

The Regional Skills areas include:

Automotive Service: Students will rotate through 6 stations similar to those they will see at the Regional Skills competition.

FULL! Baking: Students will be in the demo lab, running through some Skills related tasks.

Cabinet Making: Students will work on a project that will reflect the skills to be tested during the Regional Skills competition. Please note: students who register for this area MUST have experience working with power tools. 

Carpentry: Students will work on a project that will reflect the objectives of the Regional Skills competition project. Please note: students who register for this area MUST have experience working with power tools. Steel-toed boots are recommended however Career Transitions will have toe caps for student who do not have steel-toed boots. 

Culinary Arts: Students will be in the demo lab, running through some Skills related tasks.

Fashion Design: Students will learn more about fashion illustration and how to draw garmets on a fashion figure. Please note: this area has been removed for this event. Sorry for any inconvenience. 

Graphic Design: Students will work through the process of designing a project to "client specs". Students will work on computers, setting sizes, authoring, exporting, and defending. 

FULL! Photography: Students will participate in a mini competition based on a theme.  Students will take photos in the area, complete minor edits on the photos, then have an open discussion about how the photos fit within the theme and set criteria.  Please note: students who register for this area are welcome to bring their own camera however, they will have to carry their camera with them for the entire day. 

Video Production: Students will shoot video and do editing on the College computers.
