Overview 

Are you looking for work and a career? Employment training? On-the-job training? Do you need to refresh and build your skills? Career Enhancement, an Enhanced Career Bridging program, is a sponsored program (free training) designed to provide the essential tools you need to transition to work and a successful career. Gain the knowledge, participate in skills training, and build your confidence in using your job search tools to find rewarding employment, career advancement, and increase your success in further training.

The work placement component of the Career Enhancement program will provide the opportunity to benefit from Sask Polytech’s strong connection with employers and industry.
