National Apprenticeship Week is an opportunity for the union construction industry to showcase the many different career paths in the building trades. Each career path offers a unique opportunity to learn useful skills and have a sustainable and rewarding career. The length of apprenticeship varies depending on the specific trade chosen, but each offers on-the-job and classroom training by experienced tradespeople.
This year, Building Advantage’s annual Career Fair took place during National Apprenticeship Week. Over 300 students from seventeen schools participated in the event along with nineteen union trades and contractors. Students learned more about each of the trades while experiencing different hands-on activities.
