Career Education and Experience Development Centre offers career education services

Red Deer Polytechnic says its Career Education and Experience Development Centre is connecting learners with employers and regional organizations.

The CEED Centre is a comprehensive, centralized hub on main campus that offers career education services to help meet the needs of students, alumni, employers and organizations. The centre’s resources and free services, which include workshops and resumé building, are offered on campus and virtually.

“The valuable services provided through the CEED Centre complement Red Deer Polytechnic’s industry-relevant programming and range of credentials,” said Dr. Paulette Hanna, interim vice-president academic.

“The dedicated staff within the CEED Centre facilitate collaborative connections between students and organizations, which further prepare learners to become successful leaders in their careers.”

Along with partnering with employers and industry, the CEED Centre collaborates with faculty and staff across the polytechnic to help students obtain skills, workplace experiences and jobs.

Through the centre, students are matched with appropriate work-integrated learning opportunities, including internships, co-ops, and required professional practices with regional industry.

Stuart Cullum, RDP president, said the centre bridges the gap between learners, employers and organizations.

“Regional organizations and employers can use the services of the CEED Centre to help fill organizational needs and to help address labour shortages. These collaborative partnerships will help to prepare a new generation of workers and contribute to the prosperity of Alberta,” said Cullum.
