SK and SaskPolytech expand dual-credit program

May 20, 2015

High school students in Saskatchewan will have more opportunities to complete dual-credit courses through an expanded partnership between the provincial government and Saskatchewan Polytechnic. Three more courses will be recognized through the program, with students gaining credits for high school graduation and towards certification in Early Childhood Education. The courses will be available via distance education for grade 11 and 12 students from across the province, including students at First Nations schools. Students who successfully complete all three courses will be eligible for entry-level provincial certification, allowing them to work in provincially licensed child care centres. The courses are available through the program beginning in September 2015. SK News
