Pathways to apprenticeship



There are many different ways you can get apprenticeship training and prepare for a new career.

Co-Op Diploma Apprenticeship Programs

Co-Op Diploma Apprenticeship programs allow you to get apprenticeship training while earning a college diploma.

Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP)

OYAP allows high school students to learn about apprenticeship training and have an opportunity to begin apprenticeship training while they are still in high school.

Pre-Apprenticeship Training Program

This program helps unemployed individuals upgrade and develop the job skills which can lead to an apprenticeship.
