"I took the TTTE program in 2014. I really enjoyed the hands-on training in all the different trades within this program, and the instructors were great. I'm interested in seeing how the new program will provide pedagogies for trades from Okanagan College trades instructors." 

James now teaches Tech Ed at Glenrosa Middle School and the Custom Longboard and Concrete Creations camps at Camp OC at Okanagan College in the summer.

"I graduated from the TTTE program in 2014. I’m glad I took the training at Okanagan College as it has helped prepare me for teaching trades in high schools. The instructors were very knowledgeable and made the course material relevant for teaching younger students. I enjoy working with youth and watching them grow throughout the learning process."

Today, Colin is a metalwork teacher at Merritt Secondary School.
