Ottawa, Ontario — July 4, 2017 — The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum is hosting a two-day workshop on the future of apprenticeships, taking place October 26 and 27 at the Delta Ottawa City Centre. The workshop, titled “Innovations in Apprenticeship: does technology support learning and inclusion?” will teach attendees about alternate delivery options for apprenticeship technical training, including information on how new apprenticeship training approaches are aiding in accommodating under-represented groups.
In particular, the workshop will outline how apprenticeship training is adapting to technology trends and calls for diversity, while continuing to develop the skills of highly-skilled tradespeople.
Topics include creating accessible training for Indigenous people, online learning, women in the trades and a CAF-FCA Research Summary on technology, learning and inclusion. Attendees will also enjoy breakfast and lunch on both days as well as opportunities to network.
