In our technology-driven word, it’s no surprise that jobs in information technology, networking and cyber-security are all in very high demand. And, recently some schools in Manitoba have caught on to this trend, deciding to offer courses in such areas.

MyToba has recently reported that students of Sisler High School, Manitoba will soon gain access to a range of IT courses through the school’s Virtual Network and Cyber Security Centre. These courses will prepare them for entry-level positions and internship opportunities after graduation.

“This is a world-class program that equips Manitoba students with skills that are highly valued by the IT industry,” said Premier of Manitoba Greg Selinger.  “We are investing in making it available to even more students so they can get the jobs of tomorrow right here at home.”

In addition, Sisler High School is also working with various tech companies, such as Complex Games, MTS, EPIC and more, in order to connect its graduates with opportunities like internships and jobs.

Currently, 200 students have enrolled in Sisler’s IT courses for the 2015-16 school year.
