ON invests $4.8M to expand dual credit program

The Government of Ontario has invested $4.8M into expanding its dual credit program. The program allows high school students to complete college credits and apprenticeship training to get a head start on their studies or a career in the skilled trades. The expansion will enable an additional 2,200 students to participate in the program, and will also attract an additional 420 students into early childhood education career pathways. Dual Credit Level 1 Apprenticeship training programs will also now include additional Training Delivery Agents. “When you have a job in the trades, you have a job for life,” said Monte McNaughton, ON Minister of Labour, Immigration, Training and Skills Development. “Our government will continue to give students the tools they need to land six-figure salaries and purpose-driven careers.” ON Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
