Explore skilled trades through Co-operative Education

WHAT IS OYAP?
The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) is a School to Work program that opens the door for students to explore and experience apprenticeship skilled trade career opportunities, starting in Grade 11 or Grade 12, through the Cooperative Education program.
Students can become registered apprentices and work towards becoming certified journey persons in a skilled trade while completing their secondary school diplomas.
Over 22,000 students participated in OYAP in 2013/14 and almost 5,000 of those OYAP students had Registered Training Agreements.
