Special Education

Specialist High Skills Major

Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs are sector-specific programs that start in Grade 11. They're made up of a bundle of courses with options for all post-secondary pathways. In an SHSM, students:

  • complete a specific bundle of 8-10 courses in the student's selected field
  • earn valuable industry certifications related to the selected field
  • gain important on-the-job skills through co-operative education placements

Cooperative Education

All students, regardless of their post-secondary destination, have the opportunity to take cooperative education (co-op). In co-op, students learn by integrating classroom theory and learning experiences at a workplace.
