Goal 4

Our goal is to provide British Columbians with information and support to encourage participation and improve success in the trades training system. We will provide more information to employers about the value of apprenticeship; ensure that both employers and apprentices have access to on-the-ground support across BC; and continue to develop strategic partnerships across BC that promote apprenticeship and the trades as a great career choice.

  • Provide tailored advice to apprentices and sponsors
  • Promote partnerships across BC

Outcomes

  • Improved information about the value of apprenticeship to increase the number of sponsored apprentices in areas of labour market demand
  • Increased understanding and knowledge about industry training programs
  • Enhanced customer support to apprentices and employer-sponsors to enable success
