The Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) is a great option for students interested in a career in the trades.
RAP allows high school students to begin an apprenticeship training program as early as Grade 10. These students earn credit toward a high school diploma and an apprenticeship program at the same time.
Students can select from more than 50 trades and occupations to explore. Each student is paired with an employer to gain an inside look at their chosen trade. This lets the student explore their interests and confirm whether the trade is a good fit. It also provides invaluable experience and training that gives the student a distinct advantage post graduation.
