The School College Work Initiative provides funding for various projects each year. The phase 9 projects which were approved focus on fostering school/college/work connections that result in curriculum alignment, clarification of pathways, staff and resource development.
The S.C.W.I. in the Greater Toronto Area is administered by the Connecting GTA Teachers planning team. Regional planning activities include consideration of initiatives to help develop strategies for assisting all students, including at-risk learners, to consider college options and pathways -- making the transition from secondary school to college successful.
