What is it?  The Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) program is a Ministry of Education initiative that allows schools to offer certification in specialist subject areas.  At Mulock we are proud to offer SHSM Certificate options in Health and Wellness and Information and Communications Technology.  The SHSM @ Mulock Moodle is the source for your SHSM course planning and information.

Why should you do it?  Students in the apprenticeship, college and university pathways all have an opportunity to combine their academic skills with “hands on” experiences and co-op credits. The SHSM specialist certification is recognized by employers, colleges and universities and may increase your opportunities for scholarships and highly competitive programs and careers after high school.

How does it work?  At Mulock, during the month of December through to February, students register online through the SHSM @ Mulock Moodle.  Use the SHSM Registration Link and complete the 2 minute survey.   Once completed, students will be contacted with information on what courses to select based on their career interests and chosen pathway.  This information will guide students through the online Career Cruising course selection process that all students must complete.

What SHSM courses are offered?  SHSM Pathway Charts are available in the Business office.  These helpful planners outline your academic options and opportunities in this program. These courses will combine knowledge with relevant “hands on” experiences in the school, with guest speakers, on field trips and in their co-op placement.

If you have any further questions please see Mrs. Lloyd-Graham, the Specialist High Skills Major Program Coordinator, in the guidance office.
