Work Experience students can earn up to 15 credits towards graduation requirements and are allowed to work during regular school hours, week-ends, and holidays between the hours of 7:00 AM and 10:00 PM  Work Experience positions must be approved by the Off Campus Coordinator and once their worksite has been approved, students are covered by Worker’s Compensation.

As part of Work Experience, students develop a learning plan in which they identify the skills they want to learn and develop through their job. The success of this Learning Plan and the student’s performance on the job forms the basis of the marks and credits earned in Work Experience.

Students wishing to take Work Experience must have a paid or volunteer position with an employer that is supportive of Work Experience.  Students can start at any time in the school year and need to speak to their Counsellor or the Off Campus Coordinator to initiate the process.
