Immigrant Women Trades Apprenticeship Program (IWTA)
PICS is pleased to launch a new program, Immigrant Women Trades Apprenticeship Program (IWTA). The IWTA project focuses on recruiting, retaining and helping women apprentices in five identified Red Seal Trades in British Columbia: Carpenter, Plumber, Welder, Construction Electrician, and Construction Craft Worker.
It is a 10-week program (6 weeks of skills training and 4 weeks of work experience) that supports immigrant women apprentices from intercultural equity deserving groups who are underserved, facing multiple barriers to employment in these Red Seal trades in British Columbia. Our education partner is ACE Trades and Technical Institute.
We are starting with the first cohort of Construction Electrician Trade on September 11, 2023. This program gives an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills needed to enter the Construction Electrician occupation. This program emphasizes a hands-on approach to training for Red Seal Trades in British Columbia. The training will have 6 weeks of skills training followed by 4 weeks of work experience with employer.
