NWT residents can now have their say on programs offered at the proposed polytechnic university.
The territorial government has released a discussion paper, grouping classes into four areas of study.
- Skilled trades and technology — for example: carpenter, electrician, heavy equipment training
- Mineral resources and environmental management — underground miner training, environment and natural resources technology diploma
- Northern health education and community services — nursing, social work, early childhood education
- Business and leadership — business administration, northern leadership development program
The department of Education, Culture and Employment says the polytechnic’s specialization will help guide which classes are offered.
Interested residents can download the feedback form here and must submit it to the department by Sept. 28.
This is the second discussion paper released by the department. The other focused on the polytechnic’s governance structure.
