Vocational Training

Vocational training is incorporated in all classrooms. Pre-Vocational skills’ training begins at the St. David Parish Site.  Vocational training at the OLC Bishop McDevitt site is integrated within the daily curriculum in three areas.

  • Classroom Life Skills instruction involves culinary, maintenance, and consumer education. Students develop clerical skills through an on going mailing, use of computers/IPads and implementation of appropriate social/work behaviors.
  • Work Experience Program is a key component of our curriculum.  Students work within the community in various locations.  Presently students work in HolyRedeemerHospital, Provincialate and Thrift Store, Saint Mary Manor Continuing Care Facility and AncillaeAssumptaAcademy
  • Practical Assessment Exploration System (PAES Lab) is a curriculum that operates in a simulated work environment. Work procedures are followed so students get the feel of real work. The focus is on the students finding their interests and abilities. The areas accessed within the PAES Lab are:
    •  Business/Marketing
    • Computer Technology
    • Construction/Industrial
    • Processing/Production
    • Consumer/Service
