The Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC) is the only national, multi-trade and technology competition for students and apprentices in the country. Every year, more than 500 young people from all regions of Canada come to SCNC to participate in over 40 skilled trade and technology competitions. By providing a forum where Canadian youth can compete at the national level, SCNC provides hands-on work experience related to skilled trade and technology careers. Through these competitions, Skills/Compétences Canada also seeks to raise awareness about skilled trade and technology sectors to Canadian youth and their influencers. Students must compete at local, regional and provincial/territorial events in order to represent their province/territory at SCNC.
Keyin College, St. John’s campus, were very proud to have their student, Ashleigh Pickering (Skills Canada Provincial Hairstylist NL winner) compete at the national level, representing Newfoundland Labrador, in the Hairstylist competition! Ashleigh, along with her instructor Kim Seward, attended the competition in Winnipeg during May 27-June 3, 2017.
Congratulations Ashleigh on your tremendous success, and Kim for your continued support and dedication to your students and the hairstylist trade!
