Pathway Programs

Pathways to Success

 

A pathway refers to a person's individual journey which includes experiential learning, school and community supports, courses and programs that lead to a successful transition from grade-to-grade and then to a post-secondary destination (apprenticeship, college, community living, university, workplace).

Our school allow students to grow and learn spiritually, personally and academically. It is a time for students to meet new friends, join extra-curricular activities and learn about their strengths and interests.

As you grow to understand your God-given talents, it is important to take time to reflect on personal strengths and interests while exploring community, career and education options.

Planning pathways for life-long learning

Students, parents and teachers are life-long learners. The idea of planning a pathway toward an educational goal should be focused, yet flexible. Educational goals can change over time. The ultimate goal of a student is to find and enjoy meaningful work.
There are many ways to journey toward work. The journey involves the transition from grade-to-grade and to life after high school to one of the post-secondary destinations of: apprenticeship, college, community living, university or the workplace.

Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship is a post-secondary pathway that combines on-the-job training, work experience and technical training that leads to certification in over 150 trades.

  • Employers provide about 90% of the apprenticeship training in the workplace.
  • All apprentices attend in-school sessions offered by approved training delivery agents (e.g. colleges, unions) for the remaining 10%, which involves classroom instruction on theory.
  • Once both school and on-the-job components have been satisfied, apprentices will receive a Certificate of Apprenticeship.
  • For trades with exams, apprentices must pass the exam before they can receive their Certificate of Qualification.
