“Carpentry is a viable alternative to college, and our goal with this program is to give schools across North America the tools to present that option to their students,” said Carole O'Keefe, coordinator of the program for the UBC. "As a result, Career Connections is one of the UBC’s most valuable recruiting tools.”
Career Connections authors are UBC carpenters from around North America who have both teaching and field experience. Before adding a project to the program, the projects are first built and tested in UBC training centers.
The program is presented to teachers by trained and certified Outreach Specialists—also veteran carpenters with teaching and field background. They support the instructional experience through mentoring, ensuring safe shop practices, speaking to groups, or arranging for professional speakers such as contractors or manufacturers.
One component of the program is "One Trade, Many Careers," which focuses on skills that research shows employers value most: Goal setting, good attitude, punctuality, teamwork, and taking initiative. It also introduces the typical construction job site. Other programs are basic and intermediate carpentry skills, residential construction, safety, blueprint reading and math review.
A major feature of the program is teacher support. Lessons are accompanied by a Teacher Annotated Edition with rubrics for each project, grading guides, a safety operation checklist, a skills matrix, and estimated lesson times.
