Foster Student Success
I enjoyed the program a lot. Not only because it was in the local area for the fact at how hands on it was. As well the close-nit comradery of a small group. This makes for constant alertness and attention. No goofing off in the back row when there is only 12 in a class. When you comparing this class to one of higher numbers you become more involved. It absolutely gets you ready for what’s involved in the field. I believe I had a better understanding going through this program that if I had no education or training. Overall its a great starting point as it gives you a vibe of what the electrical field is like.
We found that hiring Dylan from the pre-employment electrical program was a great choice as he already had gained the basic knowledge of the code book and had gotten the hands on experience in the labs that he did in class. This made it very easy for us when he already knew how to do some of the basic electrical skills for roughing in houses and finishing work. I think that his instructor did a great job on covering all of the basics and giving them a chance to tray a little bit of everything in the program.
The Fueling the Future program is very helpful in developing a skilled workforce. When you have a family to feed and a mortgage to pay, the $1000 entrance scholarship is a big help. The program is very good and the workforce is all the better for it.
Partner with Business and Community
In June 2015, Southeast College introduced the Fueling the Future campaign, an innovative scholarship and student support initiative. This campaign launched in conjunction with the College’s 40th Anniversary with the primary goal of fostering new partnerships with local employers while raising new scholarship funds for students. Fueling the Future sponsors direct their scholarship funding towards training programs that align with their operational needs. In return, the College provides various opportunities for the sponsors to engage students prior to graduation regarding future employment opportunities. To date, the Fueling the Future campaign has been extremely successful in establishing partnerships with local business and industry leaders such as Enbridge, Viterra, and Southern Industrial and Truck to support their future workforce.
As partners in education, Southeast College, South East Cornerstone School Division and the Chambers of Commerce in Estevan and Weyburn have collaborated to undertake an initiative which seeks to promote and create smooth transitions between secondary, post-secondary and the world of work for students. The South East Regional Industry and Education Council (SERIEC) was formed to address these and other collaborate initiatives between the education sector and local industries and businesses. Current initiatives of SERIEC include regional job and career fairs, maximizing opportunities to provide work experience for students in the K – 12 system, seeking opportunities for business and industry to speak to students in career education courses as well as practical and applied arts courses and exploring options for dual credit options for students enrolled in classes that meet criteria.
