OYAP - Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program

IMG_0206.jpgOYAP is a youth apprenticeship program aimed at providing senior high school students with opportunities to train as apprentices in skilled occupations. OYAP provides students with the opportunity to complete studies towards a high school diploma while beginning an apprenticeship program.

OYAP accelerates a young person’s career by several years. The average age of an apprentice in Ontario is between 26 and 28. The average age of an OYAP apprentice is 18.
Registered apprentices benefit from in-school training offered at a community college in addition to the benefits of on-the-job training in the work place.

OYAP provides a link for students to the Ontario College of Trades, particularly when students achieve registration to an apprenticeship.  Refer to the OCOT website for information regarding membership requirements:
