CNA to launch skills-based IT program

December 2, 2020
College of the North Atlantic has announced that it will launch an Information Technology Career Focus pilot program, which is supported through funding from the Future Skills Centre. The program, which is aimed at equity-seeking groups such as people with disabilities and women, will help participants develop technical skills in information technology through hands-on work experience. “This collaboration is an opportunity for CNA to meet the challenges of underrepresented groups in our region,” said CNA President Liz Kidd. “We are confident this program will also provide employers access to a local talent supply while building a more inclusive, accessible, diverse workforce in the Information and Communications Technology sector.” CNA (NL)
