Ministry announces expansions to 2 high school programs
On May 4 2016, a Ministry news release, Ontario helping thousands of additional students prepare for the jobs of the future, describes expanded opportunities in the Specialist High Skills Major program and the Dual Credit program.
From the release:
This fall, the province’s Specialist High Skills Major program will be expanded to accommodate an additional 2,000 students and just over 100 new programs for the 2016-17 school year. As a result, more than 48,000 students will be enrolled in 1,835 Specialist High Skills Majors programs across the province – an innovative, high demand program that lets high school students focus on a career path that matches their skills and interests while meeting the requirements of their high school diploma.
Ontario is also expanding the Dual Credit program to include 400 more students across the province next year. This program helps students earn credits that count toward their high school diploma as well as their postsecondary certificate, college diploma, degree or apprenticeship certification.
