NBCC, UNB, Marshal Skills Academy partner to address skills shortages

New Brunswick Community College, the University of New Brunswick, and the Marshall Skills Academy have partnered to provide experiential learning opportunities in the manufacturing and engineering sectors. The partnership is intended to address skills shortages for people who are underemployed, newcomers, or transitioning from military to civilian life. Under the agreement, the partners will work together to attract high-quality engineers to the region and retain them. “Through this collaboration with NBCC and Marshall Skills Academy, we can create work integrated learning opportunities and professional development training solutions, as well as retain valued workers in New Brunswick, increase incomes and job security,” said UNB VP Saint John Dr Petra Hauf.
