Apprenticeship training is a great way to learn job skills while earning money. It combines hands-on learning where experts in a trade (called journeypersons) pass on their knowledge and expertise to employees (called apprentices) right on the job. This practical training is combined with periods of technical training. Learn more about the exciting career opportunities in the skilled trades.

WORK PLACEMENTS

Are you uncertain of your career choice or want to investigate further? A job shadow can help to gain a better understanding of the actual job as well as provide an opportunity to ask questions related to the career, education, work, etc.

Work placements help students find jobs!  If your program does not include a practicum or work placement you should see one of our Job Coaches.  They will set up a work placement that works for you. The placement can be anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks, depending on a variety of factors.

If you are a student of North West College and would like more information on a job shadow or work placement, please contact a Job Coach from either our North Battleford or Meadow Lake campus.
