The Work-Oriented Training Path
The Work-Oriented Training Path (WOTP) consists of two different programs of education, Pre-Work and Semi-Skilled.
Both of these pathways give students the opportunity to obtain practical training in the workplace while pursuing General Education with a Secondary Cycle One curriculum adapted to their needs.
This pathway is different because it is practical in nature and its objective is immediate preparation for the job market. It gives students the opportunity to experience success in different contexts through adapted instruction.
Students eligible for this path are at least 15 years of age on September 30th, and have experienced significant difficulties in English and Mathematics.
The student’s competency report and Individualized Education Plan (IEP) should also show that this training path is most likely to meet the student’s interests, needs and abilities.
This a three-year program designed for students whose competency report at the end of Secondary Cycle One shows that they have not met the
requirements of the Elementary End-of-Cycle 3
program evaluation for English and Mathematics.
This training helps students to progress at their own pace in a variety of subjects while preparing them to carry out their roles as adults, citizens and workers. During the first year of the program students receive practical training within the school setting. The following two years involve a combination of school and workplace training. The student can achieve specific competencies related to different semi-skilled trades.
Upon successful completion, students receive a Pre-Work Training certificate from the ministère de l’Éducation, de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche (MEESR).
