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.

SCWI Newsletter: Spring 2018

This issue marks another year of incremental progress. Experienced practitioners have welcomed new staff, ensuring that new ideas and innovations continue to enhance the solid foundations of the Dual Credit initiative. Ongoing and improving access to rich data has facilitated successful, measurable and targeted SMART goals. As we continue to streamline the allocation of resources, more students can be assisted to achieve their goals. Enrolments and retention continue to grow as we share best practices through symposia, teleconferences, the summer institute, web sites, and this newsletter. One of the most exciting changes has been the introduction of the pilot program to support adult students (After ADC). This brings a range of opportunities for older students to re-engage in a manner which respects their unique needs, challenges and busy lives. Take time to enjoy the offerings, articles and testimonials that profile this vital and rewarding work.
