Conestoga, St Leonard’s, Brant Skills Centre partner to offer free construction skills program

October 30, 2020
Conestoga College has partnered with St Leonard’s Community Services and Brant Skills Centre to deliver the Construct Your Career Brantford program. This free eight-week program addresses a shortage in skilled labour through training students for a career in the construction sector and includes training in carpentry, plumbing, and electrical trades, as well as math and communications. Graduates will receive a Construction Foundations certificate from Conestoga. “The goal of this program is to support skilled labour entering the field by providing participants with the knowledge they need for entry-level roles,” said Malcolm Whyte, director of employment services at St. Leonard’s Community Services, “and in some cases, starting on a path towards further education or completing an apprenticeship.” Conestoga (ON)
