What’s up in the Skilled Trades?

Did you know that Skills Ontario is hosting a skilled trades camp for kids entering grades 7-9 this summer? 🌞👷‍♀️

This summer camp is a week-long day program running in various locations across the province during July and August, where your camper can enjoy a week full of hands-on activities relevant to the skilled trades, developing communication, problem-solving, and teamwork skills. They'll explore careers in industrial, construction, motive power, service, and technology sectors through workshops, interactive games, and industry tours.

At NBBS, we're big believers in teaching today's youth about careers in construction. We support initiatives like Skills Ontario Summer Camp because they provide invaluable experiences and inspire the next generation of skilled tradespeople.

Your Future is Calling! Have you heard of the Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) Program for high school students. It usually starts in grade 11 and it is not too late to look into this opportunity for your student or yourself if you are going into grade 11! It really helps you build your resume while in high school and can set you apart from the competition!

In a SHSM program students can customize their secondary school education to suit their interests and talents, develop specialized knowledge and skills that are valued by the sector and postsecondary education institutions, acquire sector-specific and career-relevant certification and training and gain confidence in their knowledge of the SHSM sector! These are just a few of the benefits. 

Explore this ministry approved program and contact your school’s guidance counsellor to enrol!
