The province is putting another $30 million into shops classrooms in Manitoba schools.
The new or renovated spaces provide teens training for jobs in everything from broadcasting to plumbing.
Education Minister James Allum tells 680 CJOB vocational education is something parents have asked for.
“So when we invest in new shops, we give children the opportunity, our students the opportunity to get their first year of apprenticeship before they even leave high school,” says Allum.
He adds the first $30 million in funding announced in 2014 provided 19 new projects in 17 schools across Manitoba.
