Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program logoGeneral Description:

In the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) students in Grade 12 or Grade 12+ have an opportunity to become registered apprentices and work towards becoming certified journey persons in a skilled trade while completing their secondary school diplomas. Students can earn 2-3 dual credits towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) at the same time they are completing their Level 1 apprenticeship at the college.

 

The goals of OYAP are:

  • To provide students with the opportunity to start training in a skilled trade while completing the requirements for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma;
  • To enable students to make the school to work transition by direct entry into apprenticeship training;
  • To provide employers with the opportunity to train the skilled workers they require;
  • To provide a viable solution to address the problem of skilled tradespeople shortages in general, and specifically the lack of young people joining the trades.
