Ontario student can’t wait to teach trades in B.C. at Okanagan
Ontario student can’t wait to teach trades in B.C.
An Ontario man hopes to soon be among those helping to address a critical shortage of trades and technology teachers in the province.
James Ross entered the two-year Trades Technology Teacher Education (TTTE) diploma program at Okanagan College last fall, after making the decision to move to Kelowna specifically for the program.
“In Ontario I could only get training in one trade, but here I can learn anything that is teachable – drafting, robotics, electronics, welding, automotive – it’s incredible,” said the 27-year-old.
