Skilled Trades are the hottest topic – and for good reason! These in-demand jobs are facing serious labour shortages now and this trend is predicted to continue. Good pay – steady employment – let’s get training! 

Skills@Work isn’t just another training program. Created with employers these series of bootcamps and development programs give the skills that lead to jobs. .

Georgian College – with support from the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development – will deliver a new career coaching and training support program in 2018-19. The program that is funded by the Government of Ontario’s Skills Catalyst Fund (SCF), will support job seekers and individuals employed in the construction, manufacturing and health care sectors in Barrie, Orillia and Orangeville. 

“Georgian’s project is exactly the type of partnership we need in Ontario’s changing economy – one that brings workers, employers, educators and learners together,”

Mitzie Hunter, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development.
