Another area that Trade Winds is looking at supporting our graduates is by linking them to employers in the trades. Through the work of the Industry Engagement Liaison, we have had opportunities to discuss the potential for unique partnerships.
Some of the ways we are looking at working with industry are:
- Discussions to learn more about current and forecasted labour market needs
- Invitations to attend site visits at our training facilities
- Employee connections
- Learning more about grant applications offered, sharing information with graduates to support continued education
- Finding ways to utilize existing company programs, such as co-op programs to help graduates build more skills in the corporate environment
