National Apprenticeship Conference
CAF-FCA’s biennial national conference brings Canada’s apprenticeship community together to highlight promising practices and innovative solutions in apprenticeship training.
The 2020 conference will highlight initiatives, programs and strategies that help attract and retain top talent. This requires an understanding of how to breakdown the stigma associated with skilled trades careers and engage youth, underrepresented groups, parents and educators to actively promote apprenticeship as a first-choice career path. It must also include programs and tools that assess essential skills, social and emotional competencies and employability as well as flexible and innovative learning options.
Strategies to engage employers and industry play a crucial role in ensuring high quality training opportunities are available and are central to any skilled trades attraction and retention strategy. Members from across the apprenticeship community will share their ideas, research and innovative approaches that stand to contribute to our ongoing conversation about apprenticeship as the best way to develop a highly skilled trades workforce.
The National Apprenticeship Conference brings together key participants from Canada’s apprenticeship and skilled trades communities to learn, share and collaborate on joint solutions.
Our program was informed by stakeholder submissions on ideas, research and innovative approaches that contribute to the ongoing conversation about apprenticeship in Canada.
