Returning to High School in Ontario: Adult Students, Postsecondary Plans and Program Supports

Returning to High School in Ontario: Adult Students, Postsecondary Plans and Program Supports is an exploratory study designed to examine the role of adult high school programs in supporting postsecondary access. Although high school programs for adults are considered a “non-traditional pathway” to postsecondary education (PSE), as this study demonstrates, they are an inherent part of a comprehensive education system. The study’s reach is intentionally wide in order to draw attention to the important role of adult high school programs. The following topics are addressed:
a) the adult high school student population;
b) their postsecondary plans and concerns;
c) the adult high school learning environment; and
d) postsecondary transition supports for adult students.

Both quantitative and qualitative data were collected from close to 500 adult students in programs throughout the province.

Through these videos and resources we want to increase the awareness of the importance of the Essential Skills related to these employment goals, link youth to employment and upgrading resources through a multi-media approach and support Employment Ontario programs working with individuals looking for training and employment. The support materials include:
