The Work-Oriented Training Path is comprised of two programs: Preparation for Employment and Training for Semiskilled Occupations. A student who is at least 15 years of age on September 30 of the school year may enroll in the Work-Oriented Training Path if the student’s competency report or individualized education plan shows that - of the three options offered at the secondary level, this path is the most likely to meet the student’s interests, needs and abilities. This path replaces the Individualized Paths for Learning (IPL) and Life Skills and Work Skills Education as well as the Attestation of Vocational Education (AVE). The Work-Oriented Training Path does not reject everything that existed before. The new path still places heavy emphasis on work practicum, but the general education component has been strengthened.
