In semiskilled trades, employees perform concrete, repetitive and simple tasks in accordance with a pre-established sequence. These trades are learned in the workplace.
The following are some examples of semiskilled trades:
- Cook's Helper
- Livestock Worker
- Vehicle Cleaner
- Public Building Cleaner
Training for semiskilled trades was established following the Estates General on Education in 1995 -1996. It was meant to ensure that no student leaves the education system without at least obtaining qualifications in a semiskilled trade that will allow him or her to enter the labour market.
