Apprenticeship - OYAP

What is OYAP?
The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) is a school-to-work transition program offered through Ontario secondary schools. Full-time students in Grades 11 and 12 earn cooperative education credits through work placements in skilled trades.

Who Can Participate?
If you are a full-time high school student entering Grade 11 and are at least 16 years old before the Co-op placement starts, you can work towards a career in the skilled trades by participating in OYAP.

How Can I Learn More OYAP?
To learn more about OYAP, contact your local high school guidance counsellor, your co-op education teacher, or Angela Ciarlariello-Bondy, OYAP Coordinator at 519-255-3200 Ext 10367
