High school students from around the region will have the opportunity to get a taste for the wide array of trades pathways available at Selkirk College.
On Friday, December 6th, Selkirk College is hosting Made for Trades. The event will provide students in Grades 11 and 12 the chance to get hands-on experience and explore career directions in the trades.
“It's a great opportunity to experience our unique learning environment and learn about trades you may know very little about,” says Dan Obradovic, Chair of Selkirk College’s School of Industry & Trades Training. “It’s also a chance to dispel myths you may have about the trades, rub shoulders with our students and get the real goods on what it's like to be a student here.”
Selkirk College’s trades programs will be on display on December 6th for high school students in the West Kootenay/Boundary region.
A total of 10 trades’ career paths at Selkirk College will be on display. Students will have an opportunity to get a closer look at two each. Programs of choice will include: Carpentry, Electrical, Millwright/Machinist, Fine Woodworking, General Mechanics, Welding, Plant Operator, Metal Fabricator, Esthetics and Hairdressing. All 10 trades are based at Nelson’s Silver King Campus.
Pre-registration is required and details of each program being explored on December 6th are available here.
