What are you made of? – youth and trades
Date posted: August 13, 2014
Industry Training Authority (ITA) has developed a tool to help youth explore work in the trades.
What are you made of? is a website where you can choose up to 10 words that describe you. This produces three suggestions for trades that align with those characteristics. There are other trades to explore, too.
For each trade, there’s information on what you do, what you learn, who you work for, and what to expect in terms of pay, working hours and the best places to find a job in BC. There are also links to ITA training programs for youth.
Here’s one of the stories from this tool.
For young people who want to explore career options, this is a good place to browse.
