Training for a Semiskilled Trade

The one-year Training for a Semiskilled Trade (TST) program provides focused training in the workplace leading to certification in a designated semiskilled trade, in addition to the opportunity for intensive academic study in the three core academic subjects: English Language Arts; Mathematics; and, French Second Language.

The sections below contain a rich variety of resources to support teachers in providing high-quality instruction adapted to the needs of their students. Under Community Educational Resources you will find Learning and Evaluation Situations (LES) developed by Québec teachers specifically for the TST program, in addition to other locally-developed resources.

For even more teaching resources, check out the recommended links under Curated Resources.

Information about our vibrant WOTP Mentoring: Community of Practice project is under Professional Learning.

Links to the official MEQ Directory of Semiskilled Trades and curriculum documents can be found under Curated MEQ Resources.
