  • UPCOMING: Black Gold Trades & Career Fair in April

    Posted on    Posted in BGSD, Black Gold School Division, Featured, General, Trades & Career Fair

    Alberta is facing a shortage of trades people and in response the Black Gold School Division is working to connect our high school students with opportunities in the skilled trades.

    We are pleased to present a second Trades and Career Fair at Leduc Composite High School (4308 50 St, Leduc) on April 9, 2024. Families, students, and community members are invited to attend and discover new and future career opportunities from 3:30pm – 5:30pm.

    There will be a variety of booths from a wide range of skilled trades at the fair – from boiler makers, Women Building Futures, construction and manufacturing, aesthetics, millwrights, apprenticeships, Green Certificate, fire rescue, heating and cooling, energy, and more!

    “This opportunity is for students in grades 11 and 12 – and for members of the public – who are looking to get into the skilled trades,” said Division Principal Ray Cable. “There is a significant opportunity in Alberta at this time to enter this sector, and we want our students to have the opportunity to see what’s out there, start taking a look at what might be of interest to them, and find out what steps they need to take in pursuit of a meaningful career.”

    “We are already doing a lot of work in schools through the work experience and registered apprenticeship programs to support that career awareness, as well as myBlueprint, which provides students with great opportunities to not only look at the trades, but other career choices as well,” added Cable.

    myBlueprint Education Planner is an education and career/life planning program with the tools our students need to make the most informed decisions about their future. It focuses on preparing junior high school students for high school, and junior and senior high school students for life after Black Gold.
