About Employer Champions
At the Nova Scotia's Apprenticeship Agency, we value employers as the primary trainers of apprentices. Since 2016, our Employer Champions Program recognizes employers in the apprenticeship system who champion our shared values of:
- Workplace training
- Apprenticeship progression
- Journeyperson development
Throughout each year, we ask our Industry Training Consultants to identify employers who exemplify these criteria. Twice per year, the CEO and senior staff visit these employers to acknowledge and thank them for their efforts and to learn from them about areas for improvement in the system. The Agency also recognizes the contributions of our champion employers annually at the Agency’s Annual Industry Meeting, held each fall.
