Regina, SK – The Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce (SCC) is pleased to announce a partnership with Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s School of Continuing Education to deliver virtual programming throughout the province. Programming will focus on meeting the needs of the local business community by providing training solutions tailored towards business and skills that are in high demand or trending. The School of Continuing Education brings together internal expertise to advance professional development programs, corporate training, and micro-credential offerings.
“This partnership is coming at a critical time, as many people may be looking to retrain and upskill due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dr. Larry Rosia, Saskatchewan Polytechnic President and CEO. “The School of Continuing Education is also here to help businesses ensure their employees continue to have the skill sets they need to stay competitive as their industries change due to new technologies, shifting demographics and other factors. We look forward to helping Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce members meet their educational and career goals.”
Saskatchewan Polytechnic is a proud member of the SCC and the two organizations continue to collaborate on identifying the training needs of the local business community.
“This partnership is an important step towards providing business, especially our many small businesses, with skills that people need in their everyday operations,” said Steve McLellan, Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce CEO. “Through this partnership and projects like the Training & Employment Network, we’re working to support businesses that are the heart of our economy and have been hit hardest by COVID-19.”
The SCC’s partnership with the School of Continuing Education is part of a suite of programs that Saskatchewan’s network of chambers is building through the Training & Employment Network to provide clear and locally coordinated pathways for workers to be identified, as well as to present learning opportunities that enhance skills for employers.
