Did you hear? Alberta's skilled trades will have a Hall of Fame to call their own. This group will be recognized for their contribution to the success and growth of apprentices across Alberta.
Quick facts:
• Initially, the Alberta Trades Hall of Fame will recognize inductees through a Government of Alberta website. Long-term plans are underway to develop a more permanent physical space to showcase the accomplishments of Alberta’s skilled trades professionals.
• The awards will honour selected recipients from the apprenticeship and trades professional community who have demonstrated such actions/qualities as:
o committing to the advancement and improvement of apprenticeship education
o making a meaningful impact in their community and Alberta
o being a role model for excellence and service to raise the profile of apprenticeship education
o working to change people’s perception of apprenticeship as a valuable form of post-secondary education
o showing a lifelong commitment to the improvement, promotion and involvement of young people in apprenticeship education; and/or
o making an exceptional contribution by improving access to apprenticeship for the youth of Alberta
• Developing an Alberta Trades Hall of Fame is part of government’s robust Skills for Jobs agenda, which also includes nearly $20 million in increased funding to support and enhance skilled trades and apprenticeship education.
