Hammer Heads Academic Upgrading
Hammer Heads is a pre-apprenticeship program, coordinated by Central Ontario Building Trades (COBT). Frontier College is proud to partner with Hammer Heads to deliver academic upgrading support in the form of high school math, physics, English, and GED (General Education Development) high school equivalency. Learning is student-centred and occurs in small group and one-to-one learner and tutor pairs.
Hammer Heads is a “hands-on bootcamp” skill and employment-based training program created to support at-risk youth aged 18 – 26 from under-resourced and Indigenous communities, exposing them to a variety of construction trades and ensuring they have the necessary social and professional skills to successfully obtain a rewarding full-time career in construction.
