Semiskilled Trades

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.
