Being able to return to face to face classes was the primary cause for celebration at Carlton Trail College in 2022, says Jennifer Brooks, advancement and external affairs director. It’s the first since 2020 that students have convened in classrooms.

“We’re happy to share that we helped over 1700 students this year access trades training, English language training, adult upgrading and essential skills, as well as industry and workforce development opportunities,” said Brooks

The College continues its outreach work and prides itself on developing custom training in cooperation with key employers. BHP’s customized apprenticeship program is one of those partnerships. English language programs connect potential employees to grateful employers. In its first year, the Agriculture Sciences program joins three other partner Saskatchewan-based colleges in providing the latest in training.

“We also partnered with Horizon School Division to provide First Aid and CPR training to 340 students in 13 regional high schools, and we continue to support over 1300 volunteer firefighters with access to important online training modules.” 

Carlton Trail College was recognized for their contributions to regional education at the Humboldt and District Chamber of Commerce Awards, and they received congratulations from the Saskatchewan Economic Development Alliance for their heavy equipment operator program in place near Prince Albert. 

“As we head into 2023, we are thankful for the leadership of our board, and we look forward to supporting further student success in the coming months.”
