The GNWT is offering a new training program to up and coming apprentices.
The program is called “Build Your Skills,” and will allow new and current apprentices access to various online tools and sources to help expand their skill sets. These courses can also prepare apprentices for the Trades Entrance Exam, as well as other training requirements.
The GNWT recently recognized a need to fill the gap between education and employment with the use of targeted support programs. Build Your Skills offers specialized support in many different areas, for every year of apprenticeship training.
For the time being, Build Your Skills will exist as a pilot program, and is intended to remain that way until 2024.
