Student for a day
Many vocational training centres allow students to experience “student-for-a-day” activities, which permit a student interested in a vocational career to spend half of a day or a full day add a training centre to validate their career choice. They can be twinned with a current student, visit the school, follow a class and participate in activities.
It’s also possible to participate in numerous open house days offered by the majority of Quebec’s vocational training centres. Visit the website of the centre that offers programs of interest to your child to know the dates of these activities.
