High School Students Exploring Canadore
Over 350 grade 10 students will be attending Canadore for a day of career exploration tomorrow.
High school students from the Near North District School Board, Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board and Nbisiing Secondary School will be taking part in dual credit program activities and demonstrations.
“This is a great way for students to learn more about the dual credit programs at Canadore,” said Ryan Drouin, Canadore Recruiting Coordinator. “If you ask me, there is no better way to test drive a job while still in high school. Dual credit students earn high school and college credits while they take hands-on classes at Canadore towards their chosen career.”
Grade 10 students will join current dual credit students at Canadore’s Commerce Court and College Drive campuses in a variety of workshops and activities focused on culinary arts; health, human care and wellness; media and communication arts; and skilled trades and technology.
The dual credit program delivered by School College Work Initiative is designed to provide high school students and their parents with clear educational pathways to college and apprenticeship programs. There are approximately 100 high school students currently enrolled in the program at Canadore for the winter semester.
Canadore provides access to over 60 full-time quality programs and has outstanding faculty and student services. Each year, approximately 1,000 graduates join a network of 39,000 alumni working around the globe.
