Interviewing Applicants for Husky Energy Tailoring Training

Two Husky Energy Tailoring Skills Program for Women courses are ready to kick off in Henan county, Qinghai China very soon, thanks to Husky Energy (now a member of the Cenovus group of companies).

From past experiences, the students here are highly motivated to learn and we want to be able to leverage this, together with the growing demand for tailoring skills training in this region.

More than 90 applicants enrolled in this training through the local women’s director. More than 70 candidates were selected by the women’s director and project coordinators who meet the requirements to be able to enroll in the training.

The project supervisors interviewed these trainees in July and August. This training is especially beneficial to help unmarried women, single mothers, and families with difficulties working at home or who need flexible employment opportunities.

A total of 60 trainees will participate in the two classes this period, with 30 people in each class. The teachers of the two classes are assisting in the preparation for the start of classes.

We are all very excited for this next run of the Husky Energy Tailoring Skills Program! We hope that this will pave the way for more women for skills development and job opportunities in the coming months!
