These programs provide grade 10 and 11 students in the Options and Opportunities and Co-op programs the opportunity to earn hours toward an apprenticeship and high school credits through 5-7-week on-the-job paid work terms. The programs are funded and supported by the Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency and participating employers. They are led by industry associations and offered in partnership with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and regional school boards. MORE INFO...Contact Teri DeMan
