We are looking for farm equipment dealerships to sponsor a student work placement for the upcoming school year.
With each student work placement of $500 (for which your business will receive a charitable receipt), your dealership agrees to host an AET student for 40 hours of work.
AET 20L & 30L are available to students across Saskatchewan. The 20L elective will be offered as of September 2018 and the 30L option will be available September 2019. Once enrolled, students will complete 50 hours online theory at a pace, time, and place that works for them.
Once the student has completed the online theory, they will be matched with an ag dealership close to the community in which they live, to begin a work placement. Sun West DLC’s AET coordinator will facilitate placements at dealerships around the province and provide support to host dealers. Educators from the local school division will supervise students throughout the duration of the placement.
The AET coordinator will work with teacher supervisors to coordinate two, five-hour student boot camps at Sask Polytechnic’s Saskatoon campus as well as any optional extra-curricular events (such as Agribition, speaker days, etc.) throughout the course.
Check out our resource library for posters, banners, factsheets, etc. for your use at your dealership or wherever you see an opportunity.
