Youth Train in Trades

Students can apply for a Youth Train in Trades (formerly ACE IT Foundation Training) program while still in high school.

You earn post-secondary and secondary school course credit at the same time. Take a trades program in Grade 12 without paying tuition, and graduate with a head start on training.

Youth Train in Trades students can choose from mechanical trades foundation training, construction trades foundation training, culinary arts training and horticulture.

Some programs allow you to take part in community work both in Kamloops and abroad.

Tours and a shadow program are available for those who are not sure what they want to take.

Visit the School of Trades and Technology for more information.
