Skilled Futures in Trades & Tech

One hundred and twenty students in grades 8, 9, and 10 from the Chignecto-Central and Strait Regional Centres for Education will be attending Skilled Futures in Trades & Tech, presented by Skills Canada – Nova Scotia (SCNS) on Wednesday, November 21, at the NSCC Pictou Campus in Stellarton.

Skilled Futures in Trades & Tech is a one-day event that offers students the opportunity to explore skilled trade and technology career options by participating in hands-on workshops, ranging from virtual & augmented reality to plumbing.

“Students from across Nova Scotia are making decisions about their futures. Our Skilled Futures series is an interactive tool that allows students to immerse themselves in a variety of career options in skilled trades and technologies, in an effort to help students make an informed decision,” said Courtney Gouthro, Executive Director of SCNS. “The most exciting part of the day is when they discover a career choice that they may not have considered before.”

Skilled Futures in Trades & Tech is one in a series of one-day career exploration events taking place from October to April at locations across the province. This event would not be made possible without the generous support of the Nova Scotia Community College and the Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency.

Skills Canada – Nova Scotia is a not-for-profit organization that provides opportunities for Nova Scotian youth to explore skilled trades and technologies, discover their passions, and strive for excellence.
