Skilled Futures in Truro

Published by Truro Colchester Partnership on

Fifty-eight students in grades 7 to 11 from the Chignecto Central Regional Centre for Education and Conseil scolaire acadien provincial will be attending Skilled Futures in Technology, presented by Skills Canada – Nova Scotia (SCNS) on Tuesday, October 29, at NSCC Truro Campus.

Skilled Futures in Technology is a one-day event that offers students the opportunity to explore technology career options by participating in hands-on workshops, ranging from 3D animation, to coding and prototyping, to game development and more.  

“The exponential growth in the IT sector has created a huge demand for tech talent in Nova Scotia, and across the country,” said Courtney Gouthro, Executive Director of SCNS. “Our Skilled Futures events provide students the opportunity to immerse themselves in a variety of technology centered career options. The most exciting part of the day is when they discover a career choice that they may not have considered before.”

Skilled Futures in Technology is one in a series of one-day career exploration events taking place from October to April at locations across the province. This event would not be made possible without the generous support the Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Nova Scotia Community College, and the Truro & Colchester Partnership for Economic Prosperity.

Skills Canada – Nova Scotia is a not-for-profit organization that provides opportunities for Nova Scotian youth to explore skilled trades and technologies, discover their passions, and strive for excellence.
