Are you a Grade 10 or 11 student interested in learning a skilled trade?

NBTAP is a pre-apprentice program that connects high school students with New Brunswick skilled trade employers. Employers identify skilled trades jobs they will need to fill in the future and NBTAP helps them recruit, and prepare to train and mentor interested and qualified students.

NBTAP Student Apprentices learn practical skilled trade and workplace skills with skilled trade mentors over 2 or 3 paid summer work terms.

The availability of skilled trade work placements in each region depends on the need identified by local employers. New skilled trade opportunities will be posted starting in February for the following summer work term. Click here to contact us.
