Nominate a Student Apprentice for Award of Excellence in Skilled Trades

Do you have a high school student in Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) who you feel deserves to be recognised for their achievements?

The Award of Excellence in Skilled Trades was established to recognize promising high school RAP students who are pursuing and contributing to the dynamic fields within the skilled trades and the outstanding mentors who support them.

CAREERS: The Next Generation and its industry partners create opportunities for motivated high school students to exercise their interest in the trades as a career path through the RAP.
