Apprenticeships offer a unique opportunity to begin a new career. Unlike the conventional College/University path, apprenticeships give you the chance to learn through hands-on training while getting paid. If the idea of being an apprentice interests you, it may not be clear what your next step should be.
We offer an information session that walks you through the basics of what an apprenticeship is, what your funding and educational options are, and how you can get started. The Apprenticeships workshop is hosted every month across our branches. For more information about the workshop or to register for one of our upcoming apprenticeship events, contact us today.
Who is this workshop for?
Whether you’re still in school or thinking about changing careers, this information session is for anyone who wants to learn more about getting started as an apprentice in Ontario.
What will you learn?
You’ll learn to identify if an apprenticeship is the right career path for you. You’ll learn about what you can expect from a career in the trades and what immediate steps you can take to start towards your goal.
Once you’ve completed the workshop, you’ll know:
- What an apprenticeship is
- Different education options
- Which skilled trades you might be interested in
- Funding options available for apprenticeships
- How to take the next step
