Opportunities For Apprentices Don’t Stop At Traditional Construction Trades

Opportunities for apprentices don’t stop at the traditional construction trades. Through the Industry Training Authority (ITA) Red Seal Programme, British Columbians can gain the credentials to work in many sectors including the film and television industry as carpenters, electricians, cooks, cosmetologists and hair stylists.

This week the government proclaimed Nov. 2-6, 2015, as Apprenticeship Recognition Week, and with the boom of B.C.’s creative sector, the demand for skilled workers is growing.

Also this week, the Motion Picture Production Industry Association (MPPIA) is holding Career Expo 2015 where established professionals, industry crew, students and newcomers can gather information about everything from career paths, to services, facilities, new technologies, and training offerings. There will be opportunities to speak to various industry representatives who will be on hand to answer questions, and educate attendees more about what opportunities the industry offers.

Career Expo 2015 will help provide the necessary tools to help interested British Columbian’s launch a career or make a transition into B.C.’s creative Industry. The Expo will take place in Vancouver at The Creekside Community Centre (Olympic Village) on Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2015.
