Skilled Trades

Welcome

We have moved to Davis Campus and are settling into our new, state-of-the-art building. Come and see us at the Skilled Trades Centre, 'A' wing.

Sheridan’s skilled trades programs provide students with practical skills and knowledge in industrial and/or construction trade sectors. Learning in well-equipped, state-of-the-art labs and workshops provides students the opportunity to apply theory with hands-on projects, making them better prepared to enter today’s fast-paced work force.

Upon graduation students will have learned in industry-standard workshops, developing the skills of their chosen profession. Grads leave Sheridan ready and able to to begin an apprenticeship.

Highlights

2018 First Robotics Canada - Ontario District Championships STC

Sheridan's School of Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship is proud to have been a sponsor at this year's First Robotics Canada - Ontario District Championships, held at Mississauga's Hershey Centre between April 12th and 14th.

The Sheridan Robot Repair Shop, staffed by the school's technologists and equipped with precision metal cutting equipment, provided emergency fabrication of parts that allowed many of the teams' robots to be fixed up and put back into the competition with minimal downtime. For the second year in a row, Sheridan provided special support to Team 1360 Orbit Robotics of Oakville, who placed 7th of 130 teams in Ontario.

Congratulations to all involved!

Sheridan's First Ever Skilled Trades Competition

Thanks to the significant efforts of STC staff, faculty and students, Sheridan’s first ever Skilled Trades Competition was a resounding success, with a palpable energy and excitement filling the Skilled Trades Centre.

Serving as a precursor to the annual Skills Ontario competition, the March 28th Skilled Trades Competition was Sheridan’s first experience delivering an in-house, qualifier-style skills competition. Students competed in the Industrial Mechanic Millwright, Precision Machining, Plumbing, Electrical and Welding categories. The competition provided an opportunity for students to showcase their mastery and compete against peers to earn the chance to participate at Skills Ontario.

In Skills Ontario fashion, winners of the Sheridan Skilled Trades Competition were awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze medals made by Sheridan’s skilled trades faculty, and many industry partners contributed gifts for competition winners. Congratulations to all the participants and winners of our first Skilled Trades Competition.

Scholarship to support women in skilled trades

The Brampton Guardian and Mississauga News recently reported on an important initiative supporting women in skilled trades. Unifor, Coca-Cola and Sheridan College have united in supporting female students in the skilled trades or post-graduate manufacturing management programs with a $30,000 scholarship.
