Your hands on the future 

First program of its kind in the Peel Region 

The Regional Skilled Trades program is a new, hands-on Regional Learning Choices Program (RLCP) which focuses on experiential learning to prepare students for apprenticeship and college pathways. The Regional S​​killed Trades program will prepare students for opportunities to meet labour force demands locally, regionally and provincially.

 

The program provides experiential learning and career exploration opportunities, as well as opportunities to develop hands-on skills required for success in college, apprenticeships and the workplace.

 

Regional Skilled Trades is open to all students entering grade 9 in September 2020. 


 Judith Nyman currently offers a unique facility featuring 12 specialized technological education shops in areas including: automotive, welding, construction, cosmetology, greenhouse, a restaurant, and hospitality kitchens, all containing industry-standard equipment. Core subjects are offered at the applied level.
