Learn about Accelerated OYAP 1 Programs at Virtual Open Houses Oct. 27 and 29

Are you a Grade 10 or 11​​ student who wants to:
  • learn by doing things in a 'hands-on' way?
  • find out about challenging skill-based careers with great job prospects?
  • get a head start on a great-paying job while you're still in high school?
  • work as an apprentice while you work towards your diploma?
​If this sounds like you, then the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) could be for you!

OYAP is a school-to-work program that opens the door for students to explore and work in apprenticeship occupations starting in grade 11 or 12 through the Cooperative Education program. Accelerated OYAP 1 gives grade 12 graduating students with a passion and previous experience in the skilled trades a way to fast track their learning through apprenticeship. Students gain both hands-on learning in a skilled trade cooperative education placement and in-class training at a college or union training site to take in-class Level 1 courses.
