Young people of Surrey will have an opportunity to learn the skills they will need for tomorrow’s in-demand occupations.
WorkBC’s Find Your Fit tour will be making its next stop at the Pacific Academy, 10238 - 168th St., on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016.
Find Your Fit is an interactive event where individuals of all ages can learn about B.C.’s in-demand careers and test out some of the skills they would need for those occupations. Participants will also get to know career planning tools – such as Blueprint Builder and Career Trek videos – and the job resources and labour market information WorkBC.ca offers.
Parents, teachers and career counsellors may benefit, too – by discovering ways to educate and support youth in their career exploration.
The Find Your Fit event will be open to the public from 3:15 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Find Your Fit is part of B.C.’s Skills for Jobs Blueprint commitment to re-engineer education and deliver the skilled workforce needed in B.C.’s growing economy. The tour has had more than 180,000 participants so far, most recently in 100 Mile House.
Amrik Virk, MLA for Surrey-Tynehead –
“Find Your Fit is a fun introduction to what jobs will be available for B.C.’s youth in the future and the skills they’ll need to get them. B.C. is experiencing record levels of economic growth and employment right now, but there is estimated to be nearly one million job openings by 2025, and we’re putting British Columbians first to ensure they have the skills they need to fill those positions.”
