The Future of Trades

Hosted by CAREERS: The Next Generation, on behalf of Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training, "The Future of Trades" annual reception and awards evening celebrates the success of Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) and Career & Technology Studies (CTS) Scholarship Recipients. 

Scholarship students go above and beyond in their trades internships and apprenticeships, and it is important to acknowledge their extraordinary dedication and drive. These individuals, along with their families, employers and educators are invited to join us to recognize their achievement in a formal awards presentation. 

This high-profile event is well attended by industry leaders, employers, government and deputy ministers, and various representatives from Alberta's education system.
