“WORK EXPERIENCE: Education in the Community”
“One of the best courses in high school.” - Student
“Every student should have to take Work Experience.” - Employer
Students with meaningful and relevant work experience have significantly better employment opportunities than those without.
Whether your plans are to work after high school or pursue college or university, Work Experience is an excellent way to earn money and find out about careers and the world of work.
In partnership with local employers, students in Work Experience earn credits while employed at work sites in the community that relate to a student’s future career plans. This provides an opportunity to:
- explore possible career areas
- understand employer expectations
- see the relation between school and work
- develop work skills
- benefit from employer contacts
- obtain references
Work Experience is offered for 3 or more credits which require 25 hours of employment per credit.
Students must complete a one-credit 30-level workplace safety systems module (HCS 3000), before work hours can be counted towards credits.
