Skilled Trades

The Skilled Trades program promotes career exploration, skill development in the trades, and caters to a wide variety of learning styles. Skilled Trades courses are the starting point for Nova Scotia high school students who want to explore the skilled trades as a possible career option. These courses are based on curricula that immerse students in the realities of skilled trades work. They were designed by high school teachers and experienced trades educators from the Nova Scotia Community College in consultation with industry representatives.

Skilled Trades courses provide a mixture of theoretical and practical workplace activities. Students spend approximately 80% of their time completing actual trades tasks and projects using the basic tools of industry professionals.
