Program Offerings

The Trades and Technology faculty represents a significant opportunity to build on the proud histories, talented staff and proven track records of superior technical training in the province.  The faculty is positioning itself as an educational entity within UCN which is flexible and responsive to meet the changing needs of the northern and provincial economies.
UCN’s Trades and Technology programs seek to address current and future labour market shortages by providing a continuing supply of skilled human capital to industries and communities, in the North and beyond.
We are pleased to report that the faculty was very successful in accomplishing many of its stated goals this year.  This year the faculty has demonstrated good leadership and achievements in many areas. Through the work of individual instructors, coordinators, the dean and administrative assistant the faculty has developed new programming for internal approval; initiated project proposals; developed and implemented the Skills Challenge event; initiated and participated in a number of effective outreach/recruitment opportunities; and developed a successful Girls Exploring Trades and Technology (GETT)project.                                                              
The successes that the Trades and Technology Faculty has enjoyed during 2009-2010 can be attributed to its dedicated staff and the many individuals, agencies, organizations and businesses that partnered with the faculty in serving the education and training needs of students and communities.  The faculty wishes to thank all those who were involved during the year.
