Forestry is more than chainsaws and flannel. This high-demand, high-tech industry offers tremendous opportunities for students graduating in the near future!

Join Inside Education at the Careers in Forestry Teacher PD Program to discover the vast array of forestry career opportunities available to your students.

Over three days we will explore careers related to:

  • Forest planning & silviculture
  • Lumber & pulp mills
  • Wildfire 
  • Machine operations
  • and much more!

You’ll also have the opportunity to network with like-minded teachers! This PD will give you the info you need to inform your students about career pathways available to them in this diverse industry - whether they are more interested in trees or tech, there is a career available to them in Alberta’s forests!

This program is open to all K-12 teachers, administrators, career counselors and B.Ed students across Alberta. The program is no-cost to attend including all meals, program travel, accommodations and a supply teacher subsidy if required.
