Skills Clubs are extra-curricular programs run by teachers and industry professionals who want to engage students in the opportunities that trades and technology can offer. They can provide participants with the opportunity to experiment with different trades. Maybe it is designing and building a park bench, maybe it’s learning how to code or cooking fresh pasta.
