Acorn for Secondary Schools

World class content for secondary schools across Canada

To meet the growing demands for skilled trades workers and help reverse skilled labor shortage trends, Acorn has made a commitment to providing world class content for secondary schools across Canada. Secondary school teachers play a key role in getting students excited about careers in skilled trades and Acorn has developed industry leading resources to support educators and engage youth.

In conjunction with our CWB Welding Foundation, we offer content that helps students understand fundamental concepts in welding and metalwork as it relates to technology education and entry level trades training.

Through our Acorn Core platform, we support students and teachers in over 200 high schools and school districts throughout Canada! All Acorn secondary school content includes instructor PowerPoints, 3D models, practical exercises, quizzes and e-learning. These resources help metalwork teachers change how students interact with trades-based learning by providing them with relevant knowledge to successfully enter post-secondary, apprenticeship and work experience programs.
