Trillium Lakelands District School Board launched #StartMeUp, as a campaign designed to increase the knowledge and awareness of all regarding the wealth of opportunities and pathways available to students in the area of the skilled trades and apprenticeships.
The objective of the campaign is to explore current opportunities, start conversations, and plan for our students’ futures.
Students, staff, parents, and community members will increase their knowledge and awareness of the multiple opportunities available to students in this area.
Over the next ten years, as baby boomers retire, there will be a great need for skilled trade workers in Canada. Skills Canada estimates that 40 percent of new jobs created this decade will be in the skilled trades.
There are over 140 different career opportunities in apprenticeships in Ontario. See the below graphic for a full list, or explore the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program – Trades at a Glance.
Are you interested in being apart of our #StartMeUp journey and helping educate our students by speaking at an event, providing a student with a co-operative education experience, being recognized through the TLDSB Spotlight Stories, and much more?
If so, fill out the #StartMeUp Champion Application and someone from the Pathways team will be in touch!
Download the #StartMeUp Parent/Student Handbook or reach out to your child’s school directly for a copy.
