Prize for a Student in Vocational Training (English School Boards)

What would you suggest to encourage women to choose a traditionally male-dominated trade?

The Québec English School Boards Association (QESBA) awards a cash prize of $2000 to a student enrolled in a vocational training program offered within the English school board network.


In addition to the answers to the mandatory questions, the candidate's portfolio must include the answers to the following questions (a maximum of one page):

  • What steps do you think school boards should take to motivate young women to study in traditionally male-dominated fields?
  • In your opinion, how can Québec society (or your vocational training centre) help female graduates of vocational training programs integrate into employment sectors dominated by men?
