Inspire! Education Resources

What is the Inspire! program?

Inspire! is a one hour, in-school program that uses hands-on group based, trades and technology activities and compelling video content to encourage students to explore careers in the trades and technology fields and pathways to apprenticeships that they may never otherwise considered.

Skills Canada BC is currently delivering the Inspire! program to remote regions in BC (Grade 6 to 10).

In addition to providing in-class presentations, the Inspire program has included useful resources that educators and students have been using for curriculum and activities in the classroom.
