Young people in Greater Vernon were given the opportunity to discover the skills they will need for in-demand occupations at WorkBC’s Career Education Day, held Thursday at Kalamalka Secondary School.
Career Education Day is a day where students in Grades 10 to 12 can explore, experience and learn about a variety of careers through hands-on programs, business experts, post-secondary institutions and more.
Part of the event includes Find Your Fit, which was open to the public from 3:30 to 7 p.m.
Find Your Fit is part of B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint commitment to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce needed in B.C.’s growing economy. The tour has had more than 200,000 participants so far, and will be in Kelowna on March 15.
