Can you help? Schools in SD 61 are looking for tech companies to participate in a program that educates middle school students about careers in technology.
The idea is that tech companies would host an on-site tour that would include information about your organization, a tour of the worksite, and some type of hands on/interactive activity or job shadowing that will be of interest to this age group.
Spring Boards to Career Exploration – Technology
The Greater Victoria School District is developing a program called Spring Boards to Career Exploration. Grade 8 students will have the opportunity to choose from 10 modules, each module representing a different sector of industry. The modules that students can choose from include:
- Engineering and Manufacturing
- Business and Management
SD 61 is hosting this program during the month of April. Any week day in April from 9:00 am – 11:00 am would be ideal.
Does your company have 2 hours to spare to fill the funnel with the next generation of workers?
We would like to bring a group of 10 students to your workplace for a morning, approximately 2 hours.
The students will have the opportunity to have a tour of your workplace, and ask questions about the different opportunities that are available within your organization, what training it takes to do this type of work.
The students will then spend the afternoon with instructors and training providers from Camosun College learning more about the possible pathways that exist.
