Apprenticeship Programs

Commercial Foods Apprenticeship Program

Commercial Foods Apprenticeship Program allows students to complete their first-year apprenticeship with the Red Seal Chefs here at Centennial High School prior to graduation. They will be exposed to the culinary industry inside and outside of the school.  Students will receive practical and theoretical culinary training required for professional food preparation and presentation. Hands-on classes enable apprentices to hone their knowledge and skills while developing artistic abilities in our up-to-date kitchen with highly qualified instructors. 

Cosmetology Apprenticeship Program

The Cosmetology Apprenticeship Program allows students to complete the 51 credit courses of classroom instruction that is required for a Hairstylist license. Students who successfully complete all of the one credit courses are eligible to enter into an apprenticeship and to take their trade exams. Students will receive hands-on training with our Red Seal educators in our modern facility. Students will also log hours working with community clients. The Cosmetology Apprenticeship Program requires a large time commitment on behalf of the students, but ultimately leads them to achieve credentials as a Journeyperson Hairstylist while still in high school.

Interested in one of our Apprenticeship Programs?

If you have already taken the 10-level introductory course in Culinary Foods or Cosmetology, and are interested in either of the above apprenticeship programs, see your guidance counsellor for more details.
