A Leading Polytechnic Committed to Student Success

Having spent the morning with students at @Nait I was amazed at how many potential students are being turned away from programs because of lack of available seats. Last night I was told by an oil fields service company, layoff notices have been sent to 30% of their staff and more to come with oil prices falling and projects being mothballed. Many of those unemployed will be looking to retrain for sustainable employment. With many of the advanced tech programs already over subscribed we won’t be able to retain a skilled labour force in Alberta.
