School District No. 57's Skills, Trades and Careers would like to invite you to an evening of important information on trades-related opportunities available in the school district.

Doug Borden, Coordinator of the Career Technical Centre (CTC), will provide information on the various technical training programs available to students. Borden will also outline the application process and timelines for registration.

Bruce Northrop, Coordinator of the Youth Work in Trades Program, will discuss eligibility as well as the many benefits of this work program for students.

Erin Thomas, District Career Ed Coordinator, will give an overview of Work Experience 12 as well as other trades-related career awareness programs.

Graduates of the CTC program find careers as welders, carpenters, metal fabricators, heavy duty mechanics, industrial mechanics (millwrights, machinists), automobile service technicians, electricians, plumbers and professional cooks.

If your child is exploring the idea of a career in trades, this night will be an excellent way to kickstart the process. If you and your family are unsure what career path your child may choose, this will be an opportunity to gain some valuable information.
