Non Profit SHSM Sector

The SHSM–Non-profit enables students to build a foundation of sector-focused knowledge and skills before graduating and entering apprenticeship training, college, university, or a position in the workplace. Students will develop skills in the areas of problem solving, analysis, communication, cooperation, ethical values, consciousness, and citizenship. Where local circumstances allow, boards may elect to offer one or more variants of the SHSM in a given sector, each with a particular area of focus. This SHSM may be designed to have a particular focus – for example, on international development or community action. This focus is achieved through the selection of the four major credits in the bundle.

Education Stream:  The aim of the SHSM Non-profit Education Stream is to assist the future workforce in developing the skills that would make them great educators; encourage students to explore teaching in the French language, and; identify teaching as a viable career option for students regardless of the sector they are interested in. The French stream will also help to create a future workforce that can fill critical French language teaching positions, and provide students with work experience in a French language education environment.
