Specialist High Skills Major

The Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) is a specialized, ministry-approved programme that allows students to focus their learning on a specific economic sector while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

 

SHSMs assist students in their transition from secondary school to apprenticeship training, college, university, or the workplace. These programmes enable students to gain sector-specific skills and knowledge in engaging, career-related learning environments, and prepare in a focused way for graduation and post-secondary education, training, or employment.

 

Students who are enrolled in the programme will complete sector-recognized certifications and or training courses as well as be part of career exploration activities such as field trips and hearing from expert guest speakers.

 

If you’re a grade 11 or 12 student and want more information, see Mrs.Welsh in Student Services.
