Conestoga, HPCDSB partner to provide grade 8 students experience in the skilled trades


Conestoga College and the Huron Perth Catholic District School Board have partnered to introduce Grade 8 students to electronic. Through the partnership, students will be able to attend half-day presentations where they will use electrical boards to learn about electronics. Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program Project Leader Mark Flanagan explained that introducing youth to the skilled trades at an early age provides them with a career option that they might not have otherwise considered. “When you graduate as an apprentice, you are fully employed and you’re in demand,” explained Flanagan.
