High school technical training facilities get $1M boost from province

  • Print

The Manitoba government will spend $1 million to upgrade high school technical training facilities to help students learn trades and enter apprenticeship programs.

The announcement was made today by Minister of Jobs and Economy Theresa Oswald and Minister of Education and Advanced Learning James Allum at Kildonan East Collegiate.

The funding will:

  • Increase options for students to earn credit toward college programs while still in high school;
  • Promote expansion of work placements;
  • Support accredited programs so more students can get their Level 1 training while still in high school and skip their first year of college; and
  • Make new equipment available to provide cutting edge training to help students move into good jobs.

The government said the new funding is part of a plan announced in 2012 to add 75,000 new workers in Manitoba by 2020.
