OCTE welcomes industry participation and input. Our goal is to connect industry partners with tech educators to increase understanding of current safety standards and training practices from the real world and bring real-life industry experience into the classroom.
As an OCTE industry affiliate, you can review the teaching materials and provide feedback to educators in your community.
You can connect with your local school through tours of real life scenarios, work demonstration sites, guest speakers, and welcome OYAP apprenticeship placements and business co-op opportunities and internships.
You can learn about tie-ins to colleges and university programs and dual-credit programs. OCTE is committed to changing the perception of apprenticeship training, helping parents and guidance counsellors realize that workplace and tech training can be the best pathway for many learners. Apprenticeship is post-secondary education!
You can find out about conferences, seminars and information available through the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Labour, and Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development.
