Students can start the work-based training of their trade apprenticeship while they are still in high school. Thanks to this partnership between ITA and the BC Ministry of Education, students can earn 16 credits towards their high school diploma and 480 hours towards their trade credential.
Students who have met the Youth Work in Trades Award criteria will receive a $1000. The award is intended to help apprentices continue in the trade through the partial payment of tuition, or the purchase of tools or supplies.
