The automotive service program exceeded my expectations of what I thought I could learn in high school. It was very fun for me because I was doing stuff that I loved to do… and it was a good break from school. After I completed Train in Trades, I was lucky to get hired as an apprentice at South Coast Ford.
The eight month Train in Trades program gave me the opportunity to be a year ahead in my apprenticeship because I completed level one even before I graduated high school. In this course you learn the fundamentals of an automotive service technician. The course is hard but my teacher made it straight forward. You get to work in the trade and gain experience as well as classroom and shop work at school… I hope that this course begins to appeal to more and more people as it is a great way to begin a successful career!
Gabby Bishop completed a work experience at the Wobbly Canoe in Davis Bay. “I’m thinking that I’d like to be a cook and this is an opportunity to get into a good kitchen,” she said, “and I’m planning on applying for the professional cook program at Elphinstone later on”.
Transitioning students into the next grade or into the working world from school takes all SD46 staff. At the Pro D Day cultural tour, Candace Campo said, “The youth are at the greatest time of their lives as they are learning from the whole community the skills they are going to need for the right of passage into adulthood.” Thank you to all SD46 staff for being involved in this journey!
We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to live in a community where business and education work together to develop students’ passions and turn it into careers. Thank you to all the employers for hosting Work Experience and Apprenticeship students in your businesses.
