1. What is your innovation story?
InnoTech College is Alberta’s newest technical college. We’re constantly assessing the technological trends in Alberta and are working on designing curriculums that meet just-in-time industry employment needs. We work collaboratively with industry leaders to develop our curriculums and to mentor students to ensure that our graduates’ skills and knowledge are perfectly suited to Alberta’s today’s innovative and high-paced organizations.
2. Do you follow a sustainable development agenda (for people, planet and prosperity) in your company / business?
Our agenda is to ensure that we don’t compromise quality for quantity. With this mandate in mind, we invest a significant amount of effort to ensure that each one of our students’ individual and unique needs are met with the greatest effort. We keep our classrooms small and our student support extremely robust. Our students’ success is our success.
We also sponsor and partner with local community technology organization, like Chic Geek and SPOUG to assist with growing technical innovation within Alberta.
3. If your enterprise could have a global application, what is your vision for transforming the planet?
Everyone should have an opportunity to create, rather than just consume, content online.
Our vision is to make technical skills, like programming, accessible to everyone. No matter their background, learning style or experience level. There’s no reason why everyone can’t learn how to code and be prosperous and successful in today’s technology-centred economy.
