October is Skilled Trades & Technologies Month

Tuesday, October 06, 2015
Categories: Great Things, Happenings @ TDSB, Teaching and Learning

Connectivity, robots and rapid prototyping using 3-D printers are some of the technologies impacting the learning required for journeypersons, also known as skilled trades people. Electricians, carpenters and aircraft technicians are a few examples of trades requiring intensive study, which blends technology with careers and academic learning.  

In October we celebrate Skilled Trades and Technologies month and the contributions that over 300 skilled occupations make to our economy. At the TDSB, there are many ways to explore skilled trades and technologies: the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship (OYAP) program, technological education programs in 10 broad-based areas of study, the Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM), STEM and dual credit programs at Toronto’s colleges. Apprenticeship is a post-secondary pathway which incorporates college study with work-integrated experience, hence the term live your learning!
