Technological Education at L.C.V.I.
I am happy to announce that SLC will be offering a new SHSM/Dual Credit Nutrition course GENE 36.
This course will be 3 hours a week delivered virtually every Monday from 9:30am – 12:30pm, starting November 15 . (with the exception of Christmas Break December 17-Jan 3. We currently have 40 seats available and this course is available to all students.
This course will give students a general education credit that is mandatory in all SLC programs which they will then be able to transfer and will count as a SHSM major credit. Please see Ms. Dupuis for more information.
SHSM and Dual Credit
An SHSM is a ministry-approved specialized program that allows students (Grade 11/12) to focus their learning on a specific economic sector while meeting the requirements to graduate from secondary school. It also assists in their transition after graduation to apprenticeship training, college, university or the workplace. Students must complete all components to graduate with the SHSM red seal on their diploma
There are a number of Dual Credit opportunities available to students in the Limestone District School Board each semester. These courses are provided at St. Lawrence College in Kingston. A variety of courses in disciplines such as early childhood education, police foundations, graphic design, culinary arts and business, and trades are among the possibilities.
Dual Credits provide students with the opportunity to:
Earn high school credits while studying at a local college or taking apprenticeship training;
Gain experience that will help them with their post-secondary education or apprenticeship; and
Get a head start on learning and training for their future careers.
