Learning for a Lifetime


Whether you have finished your technical training and/or looking to gain some 'hands-on, real world' experience - at some point, you will want to begin looking for and applying to a paid job. 

It is not a simple, easy, and quick task. It will take some planning and prep work on your behalf. And there is no 'one size fits all' - it is personal and unique to your situation.

But there is lots of help, resources, and guidance out there to make it less daunting. The most obvious starting place is the internet. In the right column are some sample links to topics that you might want to consider.

Students who do secure a trades job should contact Ms Joanna Horvath (, as you can take advantage of the WORK in Trades benefits.
