Shirley Bond, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training and Minister Responsible for Labour has said that “Through B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint, we are committed to preparing the skilled workforce that our growing economy needs. The Find Your Fit tour ensures that our youth have the tools and resources necessary to consider the full range of in-demand occupations available to them.”
Young people of Port Hardy will have an opportunity to learn the skills they will need for tomorrow’s in-demand occupations.WorkBC’s Find Your Fit tour will be making its next stop at the Port Hardy secondary school, Jan. 17, 2016.
Find Your Fit is an interactive event where individuals of all ages can learn about B.C.’s in-demand careers and test out some of the skills they would need for those occupations. Participants will also get to know career planning tools – such as Blueprint Builder and Career Trek videos – and the job resources and labour market information WorkBC.ca offers.
Parents, teachers and career counsellors may benefit, too – by discovering ways to educate and support youth in their career exploration.
Find Your Fit is part of B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint commitment to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce needed in B.C.’s growing economy. The tour has had more than 195,000 participants so far, most recently in Courtenay.
