Toronto Catholic District School Board
Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP)

OYAP is an option for all secondary school students, including exceptional students, who are working towards an OSSD. A great learning opportunity for all our high school students. 

OYAP is designed to provide Grade 11 and 12 students with the opportunity to participate in a skilled profession through cooperative education and work experience programs. In some cases, students formally begin their apprenticeship training.  

OYAP provides opportunities for students to participate in an apprenticeship occupation while enrolled in a secondary school program leading to an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).
