Abbotsford Christian School receives $2,000 grant

Funds to go toward skills training in the 2015-16 school year

Students at Abbotsford Christian School will now have more opportunity to take skills, technical and trade training, thanks to a $2,000 skills training access grant.

The program is expanding this year to include the information and communications technologies sector, such as coding, and to make all school districts and independent schools – not just rural districts – eligible to apply.

The grants can be used for the 2015-16 school year to help pay for things such as room and board, tools, books or work clothes; transportation to work experience; and operating small skills training classes.
