PNHS students can explore trades by taking classes Junior and/or Senior year at the WILCO Area Career Center. Please talk to your Counselor for more details.
After graduation, students interested in the trades can consider an apprenticeship. Apprenticeship is an industry-driven, high-quality career pathway where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce, and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable credential. While it is used in traditional industries such as construction and manufacturing, apprenticeship is also instrumental for training and development in growing industries, such as health care, information technology, transportation and logistics, and energy.
The US Department of Labor has lots of information on their website, including opportunities in the Chicagoland area.
