In February, the Language Training Centre launched a new program to help meet the needs of refugees in Manitoba. The Pathway Program to Construction Skills is now in full swing, with 20 students eagerly learning beginner level English and construction-related communication skills. As part of the program, the students will gradually learn more technical skills and finally be able to practise their skills through work experience in the construction industry.
The program just started but it’s already well known in Winnipeg. On March 7, the class was visited by RRC’s President and CEO, Paul Vogt, along with several representatives from the media. Watch the news and read newspapers in the next few days and you will probably hear all about the Construction Skills class!
