Introduction to Building Trades Apprenticeships and Careers Day
This event is designed to Educate students, parents, and educators about the career opportunities in the building trades.
November 9, 2021 |
Welcome to the 2021 Central Illinois Introduction to the Building Trades Apprenticeships and Careers Day registration. The intent of this event is to provide as much information to High School students, parents, administrators, teachers, and counselors about construction apprenticeships and how to go about getting started if interested.
Please select either the morning session 8:30am-12:00pm or the afternoon session 12:00pm-3:00pm. This will be an open type event, each school may arrive and depart anytime during the session or overlap the sessions if need be. Plan for at least 2 hours for students to participate in the activities. This will be a “hands-on” event with many activities related to the trades. Each trade will have activities designed to give the students an idea of what each trade specializes in, along with information about each apprenticeship program. Please encourage the students to wear appropriate attire, including appropriate footwear. Parents, school administrators, and school board members are encouraged to attend as well. Arrival and parking instructions will be sent by email the week before the event. There will be door prizes and incentives to encourage student participation in the activities.
Noblesville High School would like to invite you to our Freshman Career Fair on Tuesday, 10/26!
October 26, 2021 |
About this event
It is so important for these students to begin considering their post-secondary plans, and who better to help them navigate this path than experts in their career fields of interest – YOU!
This event will take place at Noblesville High School in the Auxillary Gym from 9:00-11:30 a.m (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.) During this time, freshmen will use the information they’ve gained from a career interest inventory to engage in authentic dialogue with representatives from their careers of interest.
As a career representative, you will have your own table (picture a College/Job Fair setting) where you can speak with students on a one-on-one or small-group basis. At this table, any visual aid you can provide to really help students understand what you do is encouraged (i.e. an architect may elect to bring a building model)! If you have any information you’d like to hand out, this would also be beneficial!
