Off-Campus Education

Work Experience 15/25/35 3 - 10 credits per course

Please refer to p. 29 of the Detailed High School Course Guide.
Students with a volunteer position or part time job, with a regular supervisor or manager, can earn credits for work they are doing off campus and outside the regular timetable. Credits earned are based on the number of hours at the worksite (25 hours of work per credit). 

Note: All students will be placed in HCS3000, Workplace Safety Systems. Students are required to complete this 1 credit course before work hours can begin to be counted. Previously worked hours cannot be counted. Students should see the Off-Campus Coordinator for more information on registering in Work Experience.

Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) Up to 40 credits

Please refer to p. 30 of the Detailed High School Course Guide.
The Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) allows students to begin an apprenticeship in one of over 53 designated trades while earning their high school diploma. The goal is to achieve the first full year of apprenticeship by Grade 12 graduation. Many trades courses are available at the CT Centre (see below) to begin the RAP process. Students should see their counsellor and the Off-Campus Coordinator prior to registering in RAP.
