“Bridging careers, building careers.” That’s the slogan in a promotional video released by the Board of Apprenticeship Training, Western Region.

Along with on the job training, students have the possibility of being offered a permanent position post training. For companies, it is a one-stop destination to recruit trainees and possibly full-time workers. There are four regional boards under the Ministry of Human Resources Development. The Act, like any other Act, is boring and sleep-inducing, so we created an infographic aimed at students:
