HOW DOES IT WORK?

Using the FutureBuilder online tool, high school students are challenged to work through and track the activities that lead them to be ready for a career in construction.

They can share their progress through four levels with teachers, potential employers and other supports:

DISCOVER READY

Students discover what’s out there, what they like, and what’s expected of them.

EXPLORATION READY

Gain experiences and explore how they show they possess the Attitude, Skills and Knowledge employers look for.

WORK READY

Get prepared to take on most entry level positions, experience trades for themselves, and make the choice to pursue what works for them.

APPRENTICE READY

Is about knowing what they want and making the commitment to start an apprenticeship.

GET READY

Everyday high school students are developing the attitudes, skills and knowledge that employers look for in new workers. From positions on the soccer team to the projects taken on at home – young people are continually learning and developing themselves to be ready to begin their career after high school.

FOR A GOOD CAREER

The average age of tradespeople entering their apprenticeship is 28. Construction Ready can help you get there faster. Begin tracking your progress with the FutureBuilder.

Through consultation with industry and educators across the province, three core expectations were identified for young people starting in the construction industry.

 

We call this, the Industry ASK.

 

Attitude

Committed, punctual, eager and able to learn, focused on work, able to solve problems, works well on a team and demonstrates initiative, and always chooses a safety-first approach to every job.

Skills

Familiar with basic tool skills, functional math, effective communication, physical labour, trouble-shooting, and more.

Knowledge

Understands the bigger picture, including what the company does, what kind of opportunities are available within the industry, and the various types of construction. Works safely and is familiar with the apprenticeship program and other important aspects of working in construction.
