Compass ELC encourages lifelong learning and we work in collaboration with the Ontario College of Trades. Have a look at the Child Development Practitioner brochure for information on the apprenticeship program.

As an apprentice, you learn a skilled trade on the job. You work with and learn from experienced workers, and get paid while you do it.

You also learn in a classroom from instructors who know the trade. This may take place on a college campus or in a union training centre.

For most trades, you work for a year and then switch to studying in class for eight to 12 weeks, either full or part -time. It takes between two to five years to complete an apprenticeship.
