Work Experience


Work Experience helps students prepare for the transition from secondary school to the world of work or further education and training. During Grade 11 and 12, students are placed with local employers in positions that align with their interests and future career goals. The community becomes the classroom where students gain experience in the workplace and are provided with a frame of reference to review or revise their career goals. Through employer assessment, students receive valuable feedback about their employability skills and technical skills related to specific occupations.

Work experience is comprised of pre-placement classroom activities combined with 90 hours at a community worksite. Work experience coordinators work with students individually and in small groups to assist students with choosing and obtaining relevant and meaningful placements.

All Work Experience Programs require Planning 10, Work Experience 12 plus 4 other courses: at least two of which are at the Grade 12 level.
