Durham launches three Pre-Apprenticeship programs to remove barriers to employment

Durham College has announced that it has launched three new Pre-Apprenticeship programs in the skilled trades to prepare students to meet Ontario’s labour market needs while removing barriers to employment. Electrical for Indigenous Peoples will focus on training Indigenous people in the electrical sector to provide pathways to employment while building the workforce in anticipation of a labour market shortage. Plumbing for Newcomers aims to reduce barriers to gaining credentials by providing plumbing training to newcomers so they can succeed in the industry. Welding for Women provides training and support to remove gender-related barriers so that women can pursue a career in welding. The three programs are offered at no cost to students, and include free tools, textbooks, and safety equipment. Durham Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
