Pathways to Apprenticeship
Pathways to Apprenticeship: Options for Secondary School Students

Pathways to Apprenticeship: Options for Secondary School Students (P2A) has been revised. P2A was updated to include the Ministry of Education's renewed focus on experiential learning and pathways planning, to refine the language, and to provide links to Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development (MAESD) web sites and resources.

This document is designed to help those who work with students better understand the range of options for students who are interested in exploring or pursuing an apprenticeship. "Matching students with the appropriate opportunity, one student at a time" is a key theme of P2A. P2A adds clarity to a number of policy documents.

For more information please see "Pathways to Apprenticeship, Options for Secondary School Students, 2017" on the Ministry Policies page.

SCWI Newsletter: Introducing Our New Format

As SCWI and dual credits continue to grow and thrive across Ontario, so also does the wide range of good news stories and student testimonials provided by the 16 regional planning teams. Across the province these teams are serving over 20,000 specially selected students for whom the dual credit program provides an essential learning alternative and means to gain an Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

For this reason, we have elected to divide the newsletter into two documents; one to profile the successes of our students and staff, and a companion document listing the programs, forums and activities that energize and enable our young people. We hope you enjoy both!

We have also brought you these documents in both a FlipBook format that is easy to read and search online and in PDF format for easy downloading.

What is SCWI?

The School-College-Work Initiative is a co-operative effort with a mandate to assist in creating a seamless transition for students from secondary school to college. In addition to a wide array of learning and awareness opportunities for students, teachers, parents and the broader community, projects have been developed to provide dual credit programs for secondary students through the partnership of secondary schools and colleges.

A collaboration of the Council of Ontario Directors of Education (CODE) and the Committee of College Presidents (COP), SCWI is jointly funded by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development.
