The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum is conducting a national survey with parents and we want to hear from you!
We are interested in your opinions on careers in the skilled trades and your approaches to career planning with your child. Your views will shape future career awareness programs and resources so they will better meet your children’s needs as they explore potential careers.
To be eligible for this survey, you must have a child under the age of 24. If you have more than one child, complete the survey only thinking about the child who most recently had his or her birthday. You may only do the survey once.
The results are anonymous. The survey will take 10 minutes to complete.
All surveys must be complete by February 28th, 2014.
The Canadian Apprenticeship Forum is a non-profit organization that promotes apprenticeship training. We share information about careers in the skilled trades with youth and parents across the country by distributing career resources and conducting information workshops on apprenticeship.
For more information about the survey or the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum contact Emily Arrowsmith, Project Manager (t) 613-235-4004 ext. 201; or by email at email@example.com
On February 5th and 6th a group of ten students and two teachers at BAC were trained through the Red Cross RespectED Program.
Why do we need to prevent bullying? Here are the facts:
❏ Victims of harassment report a loss of interest in school activities, more absenteeism, lower quality school work, lower grades and more skipping/dropping classes, tardiness and truancy.
❏ 71% of teachers say they usually intervene with bullying problems; but only 25% of students say the teachers intervene.
❏ Over 80% of the time, bullying happens with peers around – and 57% of the time, bullying stops within 10 seconds when a bystander steps in.
BAC’s youth facilitators will now be taking what they have learned into the classrooms of BAC and our feeder schools. At BAC our students are aiming at creating a safe, bully-free, healthy environment, for everyone!
