Peckham Trades Academy

The Peckham Trades Academy is a cutting edge vocational program providing services to high school students who attend Ingham Academy.

Students who are enrolled in the program have the opportunity to complete vocational assessments, develop a professional portfolio and participate in numerous job shadows. Peckham Trades Academy is a place where students can learn how to be successful as they navigate into the working world. Peckham Trades Academy strictly adheres to the most reliable research to develop the most effective programming. 

The program will offer the NCCER Core Curriculum: Introductory Craft Skills, ultimately providing students with a nationwide recognized credential in the trades. 

The initial cohort of students to engage in this hands-on curriculum are students from the Peckham Trades Academy (referred from the 30th Judicial Circuit Court). Training opportunities will quickly expand to Jobs for Michigan's Graduates students and Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) youth.
