British Columbia has launched the Skills Training for Economic Recovery program, which will provide re-skilling opportunities to those who have had their jobs affected by COVID-19. BC has invested $20M into short-term training programs in a variety of areas, such as technology, hospitality, and automotive trades. The projects include College of the Rockies’ Child Youth Family Studies project, which will train students to work as early childcare education assistants or education assistants. “Funding for our Child Youth Family Studies project allows us to provide the training individuals in our region need to fill these vital roles and opens the door to rewarding new career options for those whose jobs may have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Leah Bradish, COTR’s director of continuing education.
