Humberview’s Specialist High Skills Major program in Conservation and Sustainability gives all students, vocational to university-bound, the opportunity to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge to transition as an informed and active citizen to post-secondary education or employment in the modern “green” economy.
Specialist High Skills Majors let students focus on a career path that matches their skills and interests while meeting the requirements of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Students receive the SHSM seal on their diploma when they:
complete a specific bundle of 8-10 courses in the student's selected field
earn valuable industry certifications including first aid and CPR qualifications
gain important skills on the job through cooperative education placements.
As diverse as the students who participate, the program includes:
training and certifications such as GPS/GIS, Stream Assessment Protocol, animal and plant identification, and ORCKA Basic Canoeing
reach-ahead opportunities at various post-secondary destinations such as Fleming College, the University of Guelph, the Ontario Veterinary College, and Humber College
experiential activities such as Envirothon, Forest Connects, the Canadian Ecology Centre, and the Green Futures Conference.
