Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program

OYAP is both a demanding and rewarding choice if you wish to jump-start your career. Jobs in skilled trades pay well and challenge your intellect and creativity. Better still, in some cases you could earn a pay cheque while you learn!

 Accelerate Your Education!

Apprenticeships are often the first step in a career path that can lead to an additional trade, to supervisory, administrative or management positions, or to a self-employed business career!

Students, like you, who participate in this program will be trained in a specific set of skills leading to a registered apprenticeship program and will be able to obtain both apprenticeship hours and high school credits at the same time.

At the end of the two or three-year program, you will:

  • have completed your credits for an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD);
  • have earned an Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program Certificate;
  • have completed a significant portion of the apprenticeship requirements as you continue toward attaining your Certificate of Apprenticeship and Qualification from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU);
  • have direct entry into the apprenticeship program at a College.
