Slide 8

Let’s suppose that you went to work as in the last slide * and were sent to school. But you didn’t do very well and only achieved a mark of 65%. You failed level one. Why do people fail apprenticeship courses? (Wait for reply… they usually respond with attitude.) What is the number one course that apprentices fail? (Wait for reply… they always reply with math.) Why is math such a problem - I’m sure you all love math, right? So what do we do with you? * * You return to work as usual and while you are there we work with you to see if there is some Night School ** that might help you become more prepared to attend technical training. Then we arrange for you to ** attend level one over again and because you worked so hard on your upgrading * you now score an 85%! * So you return to work again and we continue with your scheduled classes but you may have extended your apprentice beyond it’s original timeframe. *

Slide 9

Wages are agreed to in the apprenticeship agreement - which as I mentioned earlier, is an agreement between the employer, the apprentice, and the government. Each party has to abide by the terms of the agreement. * Let’s say the employer has agreed that in the journeyperson rate in their shop is $20.00. That means anyone working at the journey skill level is being paid $20.00. *** (3) Your apprenticeship agreement says the employer must pay you 50% of the journeyperson rate when you start - so what is that (ask them) - that’s right $10.00. * * After six months the agreement indicates you will get a raise to 55% of the journeyperson rate - so that is that (ask them) - that’s right $11.00. * * Six months later, you get another raise to 60% of the journeyperson rate which is $12.00. * * * (3) How many jobs do you think give you a raise every six months?? This is just one example - if the journeyperson rate was $35 dollars - what do you think the apprenticeship rate would be?? *

Slide 10

So how can you become and apprentice? * The most important thing you have to do is to get a job in the trade you are interested in. There are three ways to get an apprenticeship. They are: * Entry Level Trades Training (ELTT) Direct Entry to Apprenticeship Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) *

Slide 11

Entry Level Trades Training is a program offered by most of colleges in many trade areas. This is a good way to get a head start in a trade that you have been unable to gain employment in - and some training could open a few employer doors for you. * ELTT is a 6 - 8 month course you attend at a post secondary institution. You are responsible for paying your ELTT tuition. * You will receive level 1 technical training during this period as well as some valuable shop time. * Once you have completed the ELTT program you will need to find a job in that trade area and register as an apprentice. * Credits for the training you have received and the time you have spent are determined by the new employer in consultation with the apprenticeship counsellor. *

Slide 13

Direct Entry is the simplest of all. * You need to find a full time job in an apprenticeable trade. Finding a job is not always easy right - you need a resume, job search skills, and the ability to market yourself. The good news is, there are many people willing to help you with your job search - talk to your parents and your high school counselor - I’m sure they can start you on you’re your way to finding a job. * Once you get that job - your training is done on the job with the employer and you would be supervised by a journeyperson. * ITAC takes care of all your educational requirements - which means, your ITAC Apprenticeship Counsellor books you into your technical training courses (in school component), and ITAC pays the tuition. *

Slide 15

Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) is a great way to get a head-start in an apprenticeship program. (Ask them if they know about SSA - or if there are any SSA students in the audience.) As you may already know, SSA is a career program which provides opportunities for students over the age of 15 to begin an apprenticeship while completing High School. * (You may also want to mention the CTC option - and how SSA students can take advantage of CTC’s- if you have a CTC in your area.)

Slide 16

There are many benefits to being an SSA student, including: * You can earn 16 credits towards high school graduation. * Plus, you can earn technical training credits towards your apprenticeship program. * Of course - you will be earning money while you are learning your trade. * You will get a head start in your career - in fact, you could be a fully qualified journeyperson by the time your 21! * The SSA program provides a seamless transition from school to work - no more worrying about finding a job after high school - you already have one! Plus, you are learning valuable skills and will have all your education paid for. * Did I mention, there are many jobs opening up in the trade areas (just as the video explained) you will be in demand with your skills. * * Plus, with many of the trades, you can travel across Canada (and outside) and have your skills and qualification recognized* Finally - you will be debt free! At least, you won’t have any debt from your education and training! *

Slide 17

Finally, last but not least - the $1000 scholarships. * SSA scholarships are available to Secondary School Apprentices who achieve 480 hours of paid work and maintain a C+ average through their high school courses and demonstrate that they are continuing on in their trade area. *
