Plan Your SUTIL Event

We’re so glad that you’d like us to visit your school!

Our Post-Secondary Education (PSE) events provide your grade 9-12 students with the chance to exercise their curiosity and plan for their future. Students will interact with institutions from across Western Canada that represent colleges, universities, trades, technical schools, and career specific training opportunities that are available to them after high school.

SUTIL is here to make planning your event a breeze. Our September-December travel is divided by region and managed by a PSE (post-secondary education) committee member. Your contact from the committee will help you choose a format, can suggest options for easy planning, will email you a “What to Expect” package at the beginning of the semester, and can answer your SUTIL related questions. We’ll do our best to accommodate your school’s needs.

We’ll do our best to accommodate your school’s needs.

Before we begin, there are few things we’d like you to know:

  • Member Attendance at Events: Our full members attend all events. Associate member attendance is based on space availability of the host school. You can view our list of members here.
  • Non-Members at Events: Local employers may be included in events. If a Non-SUTIL post-secondary institution would like to attend, they must contact the SUTIL Chair to obtain permission from the SUTIL Executive.
  • Other Schools at Events: We want to provide information to as many Saskatchewan students as possible. You are encouraged to invite neighbouring schools to attend the event if your school has the capacity to do so. We can assist you in facilitating this – just ask!
  • Event Timing: It is important that events end on time so that we may safely travel to our next destination.
  • Set-Up & Take Down: When possible, we can arrive early to assist with set up and help with takedown at the end of the event. This is dependent on our travel schedule and where we may be coming from or leaving to that day.
  • Student Engagement: Valuable connection with students is crucial to a successful event. We can provide you with a list of questions in a bingo card format to foster discussion at the booths. For other tips, talk to your PSE coordinator.

Let’s get started planning your SUTIL PSE event!

Check out the options below to find the format that best suits your students’ needs.

Testimonials

Even though I am over a half a Century old, I have been inspired by the group to go for higher education. I have applied to the University of Regina and I got accepted. I plan on taking classes there and there and I pray and hope I will be successful to obtain two more degrees before I reach age 55. I want to be a role model for the students, my family, and the community. Before retiring I will tackle Masters.

Happy Friday the 13th of December,

Thank you for The SUTIL Scoop and the SUTIL team visit at Rhoda Hardlotte Keethanow High School in Northern Saskatchewan. I noticed some of the team members were into Volleyball during the noon hour. Maybe that is how the team works; to have fun and to laugh and to warm up before presenting to the students and staff. Great Team! Thank you once again, SUTIL Team.

Hi Linda and Cheryl,

Thank you on behalf of Nutana Collegiate for bringing your event to our students. I have been hearing nothing but positive feedback in the building since this morning. Being new in the career facilitator role in my building, I can’t tell you how grateful I am for having such a well-organized and easy (from the host school perspective) event to offer to my students. All of the hard work that you have put in is much appreciated. I look forward to future events.
