Ontario is providing free training for students in Oakville to support successful careers in the skilled trades.
Through the government’s Pre-Apprenticeship Training program, Sheridan College’s School of Skilled Trades along with partners Halton Industry Education Council (HIEC) and Peel Halton Workforce Development Group, and Community Employment Services Sheridan will help local trainees develop trade-specific knowledge, job skills and employment experience to start an apprenticeship in the Industrial Mechanic Millwright, General Machinest, and Tool and Die Maker programs.
Sheridan’s program will train 25 pre-apprentices to hone their skills in a 40 week program.
People who are interested in working in a trade but don’t have the skills or experience to get a job as an apprentice, can apply for this free training.
Investing in a modern apprenticeship system that provides people with the skills and training they need to succeed is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
"By creating opportunities for more people in Oakville to receive training and education in skilled trades, we will support greater economic growth and job creation, and help build a dynamic economy that works for all.”
— Kevin Flynn MPP, Oakville
“We know that when we reach potential tradespeople early with introductory training, they stand a better chance of completing apprenticeship training and enjoying rewarding, well-paid careers in the trades. By investing in pre-apprenticeship programs we’re ensuring that people in Ontario get the skills and training they need for the jobs of today and tomorrow.”
– Deb Matthews, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development
