The Preparation for a Semiskilled Trade program enables students to master the competencies assigned to a specific semiskilled trade.
The goal of this class is to help students construct their professional identity,
adopt behaviours and attitudes required in the workplace and take a first step in the integration into the work force.
In this class, students will have the opportunity to develop work-related competencies in actual work settings. They will also gain a better understanding of employers’ requirements and their need for competent, reliable workers.
All Semi-skilled trainings will need to be approved by KI’s department of Sanctions, Parfait Ceme (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm the training will respect the ministry’s expectation. Before setting up any work training, the teacher should review the ministry directory for semi-skilled trades and identify the work training the student will follow. The student must master all mandatory competencies within one semi-skilled trade.

− a learning process (divided into three phases: preparation, performance
− attitudes and behaviours that foster job retention
− documents and other resources
The actions required of students are grouped together and are presented in the Ministry’s document below. It also provides information about how to present the different resources as well as key elements.
