Intended Learning Outcomes

At this session, SHSM board leads will have the opportunity to review the recommended changes to the following:

  • SHSM policy and the five required components
  • Positioning of ICE training as a compulsory certification and training program in all 19 SHSM sectors
  • Government commitment to grow the number of SHSM programs and how they can ensure that all existing and new programs are ‘high-quality’ programs that are based upon best practice. 


After the session, the SHSM board leads will:

  • Ensure that all their SHSM key leaders at the school level will embark upon ICE training to ensure all SHSM students will complete this required training during their SHSM experience
  • Review their board’s capacity to grow their SHSM programs both in the overall number of SHSM programs and the total number of students involved in the program
  • Be in a position to identify the characteristics of quality SHSM programs (completion rates and student/community satisfaction) to ensure their planned expansion aligns with these qualities.
