Apprenticeship students have unique learning needs because of the pace and design of their program. If you are an apprentice with a disability, please register with Accessible Education Services as soon as possible to start planning your supports. If you aren’t sure about your documentation, book an appointment with a counsellor to discuss your options.
Often your in-school learning periods are short (usually 8-10 weeks), so it is especially important that you start day one with the right supports in place if you have a disability.
As an apprentice, you have access to the same academic accommodations and services that any other student with a disability can access. Some commonly used supports include the following, but you and your counsellor will find the right ones for you:
- Test Accommodations
- Assistive technology instruction (to help with reading, writing, etc)
- Getting your textbooks in an accessible electronic format
- Developing your learning strategies to help with reading, studying, remembering, and test taking
Register with Accessible Education Services as soon as possible to start your planning. If you aren’t sure about your documentation, book an appointment with a counsellor to discuss your options.
If you are an apprentice and you think you might have a disability, you can book an appointment with a counsellor to explore your options.
We want you to access the supports that will work for you to be successful in your program.
