Parents of students in grades 7 to 12 are invited to attend College of the Rockies’ Discover Trades workshop on Monday, April 15 at the Cranbrook Main Campus.

The workshop is an opportunity for teachers, students and parents to network with each other as well as industry personnel and College of the Rockies instructors.  The day will include an interactive panel discussion on the skilled trades and a presentation by Discover Trades BC personnel.

Participants will receive an update on skilled trades training and apprenticeship options, learn more about trades education designed for grades four to nine and participate in an interactive tour of the Discover Trades BC website.  Parents will also be given an opportunity to build a project in the College shops and to enjoy a lunch prepared in part by students in College of the Rockies’ Culinary Arts program.

“I encourage parents to learn more about the exciting and rewarding career opportunities that exist in trades,” College of the Rockies’ Recruitment Officer Hugh Moore said.  “We will be exploring the entire trades training and apprenticeship process so the day is sure to be filled with valuable information and fun.”

Seats for the event are limited so those who are interested are encouraged to contact Hugh Moore at (250) 489-2751 ext. 3329 or hmoore@cotr.bc.ca for more information and to register.
