Calling Grade 11 Students!!!
Are you a grade 11 student interested in gaining free certifications and training and taking advantage of unique field trip opportunities? If so, a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) might be for you! Here at Northwestern we offer SHSM programs in the following areas:
Architecture Engineering and Design (Energy)
Hospitality and Tourism
Health & Wellness
What’s in it for you? If you complete the requirements of the SHSM program by the time you graduate, you will receive a red seal on your diploma, you can use any of the certifications and training on a resume to help get a job or apprenticeship, and some universities and colleges actually offer bursaries to students who have an SHSM designation. An SHSM program is available to you regardless of whether you want to go off to post-secondary, go right into the world of work, or get an apprenticeship.
So far this year some of the amazing trips we have done include: going to the Festival to see “The Music Man”, GPS training at Wildwood, an engaging Health & Wellness guest speaker and catered lunch at the Arden Park, trips to university and college campuses, and so much more! If you are looking for more information about the unique programs we offer at Northwestern, and are curious about what you have to do or which classes you have to take, see Mrs.Welsh in Student Services for more details!
