To help promote the benefits of Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) program, Limestone recently produced several videos with help from program graduates and current students.

The videos showcase how SHSM graduates talking first hand about the benefits of these career-focused programs that allow students to acquire technical knowledge and skills in specific economic sectors while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

SHSM programs are offered in all four pathways: apprenticeship training, college, university, and the workplace. SHSM programs may be connected to a Focus Program or Dual Credit Program offered in the Limestone District School Board.

Students earning SHSM will be able to make more informed career decisions and ultimately be better prepared for their post-secondary destination of choice. Students who have earned the SHSM can provide evidence of their achievement of sector-recognized certifications and training programs to prospective employers and postsecondary educational or training institutions.
