Sponsoring or Hiring Students
When an employer hires a student and decides to sponsor them. Students must provide ITA with the name of their new employer and submit the appropriate ITA form.
If an employer decides to hire a student during their enrolment in a CTC program the student must complete a Work Based Training Form and submit it to the Career Technical Centre.
This form in no way obligates the employer to continue the students employment with their company or commits them to sponsoring a student.
CTC students may be employed by companies in paid or un-paid positions.
For un-paid positions, the student can work for a MAXIMUM of 240 hours. The CTC office must be informed that the position is un-paid and will make up a contract to cover WCB while the student is working.
The College of New Caledonia offers a free on-line job posting service that enables employers to post information on current employment opportunities for our students and graduates. All submissions are reviewed by Student Employment Services prior to being posted. CNC reserves the right to make final decisions about posting any submitted positions.
The CTC has what the industry is looking for as it faces looming labour shortages.
Students are admitted into the CTC programs through a well monitored selection process. These students are then given the opportunity to gain valuable summer work experience. When a student is hired, they receive vital hands-on training that compliments the skills they have learned during their College program. This type of experience combined with their knowledge makes them a valuable member of the company that hire's them after their graduation.
Hiring a student allows a company to 'test-drive' potential new employees while at the same time allows students to gain valuable experience. The employer will also benefit from adding to his potential employee network, giving them an advantage in times of labour shortages.
The CTC relies on families and friends of the CTC students to help find appropriate summer work experience for students.
The Industry Training Authority (ITA) now requires CTC students to recieve their work experience at a company or with an individual who is trade certified in the same trade as the student.
If you would like to hire a CTC student for the summer and have a qualified trades person working at your company the CTC welcomes your decision and your support in making the CTC a true success for all of Northern British Columbia.
