Collection: Learning Materials
This handbook is part of a larger College Sector Committee (CSC) project aimed at ensuring that pre-apprenticeship students receive an Academic Upgrading (AU) component tailored to their trade and seamlessly connected with the trade component of their program. It is aimed at professors who are required to integrate AU into pre-apprenticeship or pre-trades programs in Ontario’s community colleges.
The handbook contains guidelines for planning and developing AU support for pre-apprenticeship and pre-trades programs; tips and strategies for developing trades-related AU and Essential Skills materials; and examples drawn from the pilot program with pre-electrical students and from other colleges’ pre-apprenticeship programs.
The authors have also included an appendix that offers an overview of apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs in Ontario.
