The Find Your Fit tour stop in Ucluelet is a great opportunity for students to get valuable hands-on experience with helpful career-planning tools.
WorkBC’s Find Your Fit tour will be in Ucluelet at Ucluelet Secondary school on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018. It will be open to the public from 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“The Find Your Fit tour stop in Ucluelet is an exciting opportunity for students, parents and teachers to learn about careers that are needed to build a sustainable economy on Vancouver Island,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training. “At the tour stop, people will have an opportunity to experience a diverse range of careers and get the information they need to make decisions about their future education and training.”
Students can visit up to 16 career-activity stations where they can take part in hands-on, career-related activities like creating digital graphics, completing an electrical circuit and taking someone’s blood pressure. These activities will help students uncover their strengths and interests, giving them the knowledge they need to get started with their career planning. They can then move on to a labour market information station, where they can dig deeper into a career of their choice.
Industries such as tourism, tech and health care will need a broad range of skilled British Columbians. The Find Your Fit tour stop in Ucluelet is a unique opportunity to get insight into in-demand careers from a diverse range of industries that are important to building a strong, sustainable and innovative 21st-century economy that works for everyone.
“Our government is working hard to connect Vancouver Island residents with the information they need about emerging career opportunities here, and throughout B.C.,” said Scott Fraser, MLA for Mid Island-Pacific Rim. “The Find Your Fit tour will give people the experience and information they need to make decisions about their future careers and how to get there.”
The Find Your Fit tour builds on the government’s commitment to provide British Columbians with the services they need by giving them the information to help them make decisions about education and training.
