A pilot program in the Surrey School District is giving students with learning challenges a chance to explore a career in culinary and construction trades, a first for Industry Training Authority (ITA).

Twelve students are participating in the pilot and have already completed 30 hours of culinary training with a European chef in a kitchen at Surrey Traditional School. In early spring, students demonstrated their newly acquired skills by preparing a luncheon for teachers, administrators, and school district trustees. They’re now completing 30 hours of basic construction and metal fabrication training at Fraser Heights Secondary, where they framed a wall and are building planters.
