Stage is set for One Stop Career Centre

Close to 250 electricians and 47 welders have been certified by the National Training Board, Economy Minister Patrice Minors reported on Friday.

And the NTB sponsors more than 200 students locally and overseas every year. Some 30 young people have benefited from its apprenticeship scheme, and its three-month maritime programme sees up to six high school students travelling to Prince Edward Island for training in basic survival, search and rescue, advanced marine first aid and radio operator training.

Minister Minors told the House of Assembly that, while such important work must continue, the NTB had to evolve to serve the Island on “a more macro level”.

The One Stop Career Centre was a key recommendation of the Arnold Group’s report on workforce development issues commissioned several years ago, she said.

And the Minister explained that the National Training Board Amendment Act 2011 will set the stage for amalgamating the National Training Board and the Department of Labour and Training to create the One Stop Career Centre.
