Skills Ready Showcase Events bring industry employers into the classroom in an informal setting to see the good works that are going on in shop classes across the province.
The Female Trades Sampler class in School District 23 invited us in to hold a showcase event with them just before the holidays. This amazing class of girls has done some hard work to develop their skills in a variety of in-demand trades.
In this feature video, one of the students discusses what she learned in class and shares some advice for other students interested in taking a dual credit course.
Thank you to the employers who came out to support the students, to Okanagan College Trades, School District 23 and ITA Youth for making programs like this one available for young people who are interested in exploring careers in the trades!
