Apprenticeship, College, University, Workplace
A Pathways Night to inform and celebrate student pathway opportunities will be held at the Stratford Rotary Complex, Wednesday, May 2 at 7 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Pathways event is an opportunity for Kindergarten to grade 12 students to explore the possibilities in secondary school and beyond. The Avon Maitland District School Board Pathways team is joining partners from apprenticeship programs, post-secondary institutions, the local workforce, and community agencies to showcase options available for students.
The community information night will promote technology and the skilled trades with ironworker, welder and boilermaker apprentice Jamie McMillan. McMillan is an inspiration and mentor to hundreds of young women. She has opened doors and minds to all of the career possibilities in the skilled trades. Students and families will also hear about specialty programs such as cooperative education, Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program, and Specialist High Skills Majors and Dual Credits through the School-College Initiative.
Superintendent Jodie Baker said, “The first Pathways Night at CHSS provided an excellent introduction to post secondary schools, Stratford/Huron Homebuilders, Technical Training Group and other local companies and agencies. We know that we need to promote pathway options and improve our communication with students, families, and communities about all of the programs we have to offer.”
Families who missed the Pathways Night in Clinton can still attend this one in Stratford.
