On April 24, almost 200 ALCDSB students from all five secondary schools had the opportunity to gain hands on experience and specialized training at Loyalist College for the Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) Day of Learning.
10 Sector specific training programs were delivered by Loyalist College faculty. Each session included a SHSM training program and reach ahead exposure to the college. This was an opportunity for secondary students to immerse themselves in a post-secondary environment, to learn from faculty, current students and to explore various pathways to careers.
Each participant also engaged in an elective or mandatory sector-specific certification/training program as well as reach ahead awareness activities.
The following is a list of the SHSM programs in attendance: Non-Profit, Health and Wellness, Hospitality and Tourism, Arts & Culture, Sports, Information & Communication Technology, and Construction.
