Atlantic education and training ministers discuss high-school-to-PSE transition

September 24, 2012

At the Council of Atlantic Ministers of Education and Training meeting Friday in Charlottetown, the ministers discussed improving outcomes in education and skills training, as well as facilitating a successful transition of high school graduates to PSE studies. The ministers are increasingly concerned that too many public school students do not pursue studies past secondary school and/or delay their PSE for an extended period of time. Moving forward, the ministers agreed to further explore specific short- and long-term targeted initiatives, and directed officials to report back on strategies that can be undertaken provincially or regionally to promote a smooth transition of secondary school graduates to higher education.
