Twenty high school students registered for the Trades Sampler course at Loyalist. This is a dual credit program offered through the PASS regional planning team. Participating students came from both the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board, and the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, from a total of seven schools.
These students attend Loyalist for two days a week, for four weeks. Each week they participate in a different course from the School of Skills Training. The courses included: automotive, electrical, welding and manufacturing. College professors were involved in the delivery of this course.
The dual credit is made possible through the School College Work Initiative, co-funded by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
