The School/College/Work Initiative is a cooperative effort of the Council of Ontario Directors of Education (CODE) and the Committee of College Presidents (COP) and is jointly funded by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. A Co-Management Team consisting of college presidents, school board directors, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities personnel manages SCWI and works with all district school boards and all colleges through 16 Regional Planning Teams, across the province. SCWI provides opportunities for district school boards and colleges to bring together faculty, teachers and administrators to work collaboratively to increase opportunities for student success. Working together, schools and colleges can better inform students and parents of the wide range of college and apprenticeship programs and the knowledge and skills essential for success in such programs. The building of common understandings and the sharing of expertise and resources contribute to clear pathways from secondary to college programs for a wide range of students. SCWI contributes directly to the increased capacity of boards and colleges to provide students with engaging programs and appropriate supports to ensure both secondary and postsecondary success.
