Who Are We?
The rapidly expanding School of Trades & Technology makes part of its home in the Kawartha Trades and Technology Centre, an 87,000-square-foot trades and technology skills training facility which features state-of-the-art, sustainable shop facilities, smart-wired classrooms and labs with the newest technology. A large open area, called the Skills Arena, allows students from a number of different trades programs such as carpentry, electrical, HRAC, plumbing and welding to learn and train in one location, as they would on a construction site. Aspiring chefs learn their trade in our culinary program where they put their skills to practice in our sixty-five seat on-site restaurant. The School also delivers exceptional technology programming in a number of disciplines including computer engineering, wireless information networking, instrumentation and control engineering, computer security and investigations, electrical engineering and more.

You will contribute to cross-College discussions about curriculum, support our community integration initiatives and play an effective role in the delivery and design of current and future programming. Student assignments involve real world tasks and goals that are relevant to learner needs.

Due to year-round delivery of programs, this position may have teaching assigned through the summer and vacation will be taken at other times of the year.
