OAKVILLE -- Ontario is expanding its Specialist High Skills Majors program to help more Oakville high school students succeed and prepare for their future careers, Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn announced today.
Two more Oakville high schools will offer additional Specialist High Skills Majors this September, including:
With these additions, there will be a total of 25 Specialist High Skills Majors offered in ten Oakville high schools next school year in sectors such as business, transportation and health and wellness.
“We’re giving our students the opportunities they need to follow their passion, improve their skills and knowledge and succeed in their careers,” said Flynn.
The specialized programs allow students to focus their learning on specific economic sectors while developing the skills needed for apprenticeship training, college, university and the workplace. New program components that focus on innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship are currently being developed for all majors within the program.
Helping students succeed while preparing them for 21st century jobs is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to build a fair and prosperous society and a strong economy.
