CareerWise is always on the lookout for the latest reports related to career development. Here are four reports that we found interesting this week.

Exploring Students’ Motivations for Credit Accumulation (British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer)

This study sought to explore the reasons why students collect more credits than required for their credential(s) and their general feelings toward accumulation of excess credit. The results of the literature review showed that students in the United States and Canada completed more credits than required for their degree programs.

Powering Up: Preparing Canada’s skilled trades for a post-pandemic economy (RBC)

According to this report, 25% of Canada’s tradespeople will need to upgrade their skills within five years amid significant digital disruption, and Canada will face a shortage of at least 10,000 workers in nationally recognized Red Seal trades over that period.
