Okanagan College Construction Craft Worker Program Provides Stepping Stone Onto Jobsite For Aboriginal Students
Construction craft worker program provides stepping stone onto the jobsite for Aboriginal students
Twelve students from bands throughout B.C. and across Western Canada recently completed the first level of a unique collaborative apprenticeship program designed to support Aboriginal learners looking to advance their careers in the construction sector.
In March 2015, Okanagan College launched a new Construction Craft Worker two-level apprenticeship program. Last November, the College created an intake tailored specifically for Aboriginal students.
