Pathways in Technology Early College High School (P–TECH) is a new type of program that brings together the best elements of high school, college and the professional world.
P–TECH enables students to begin their college and professional lives more quickly and with more support than the typical school-to-work pathway.
This innovative education model is a proud partnership between Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey (MK), schools in the 5 First Nations communities across Unama’ki, Mi’kmaw Economic Benefits Office (MEBO), provincial and federal governments, Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) and technology giant IBM.
Registration has now closed for the program.
Program information can be found on this page or you can also email or call Wanda Compton, P-Tech Project Manager.

Working with IBM, who is in need of hiring for jobs in the technology field, like coding, program development and more, will ensure a job interview at the end of this program. Other local information technology companies will also be part of our program that moves our youth from school to work.
The Chiefs and Councils in Unama’ki see this initiative as helping to address some of the economic-education recommendations in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission report. This is about preparing the next generation for new technology and a new business future.
