​​Off-Campus Education

Connecting what students learn in school with the real world in a variety of ways, including job-shadowing, volunteering and paid positions. It helps prepare students for the workplace through hands-on experiences. These opportunities are offered to all high school students.

Visit the Unique Opportunites and Off-Campus Education page on the CBE website for more information.

Off-Campus Education

Work Experience (3-10 credits)

Work Experience 15–25–35 are separate courses for credit that provide experiential learning activities undertaken by a student as an integral part of a planned school program under the cooperative supervision of an off-campus education coordinator.

Work Experience 15–25–35 courses are components of an off-campus education learning experience. These courses, like other off-campus education courses and course components, provide opportunities for students to:

  • apply, in the workplace, knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired through other course work 
  • discover their career interests and aptitudes in meaningful work activities, situated in community-based work stations and work sites in business, industry, government and community service.

Work experience courses also provide opportunities for the school and its community to combine resources to further the student’s personal development, career planning and employability skills through placements in off-campus work stations or work sites.

Work Experience 15–25–35 courses, at each level, may be offered for 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 credits. Each course is time based; i.e., 25 hours per credit, and a student may enroll in Work Experience 35 without having completed Work Experience 15 and/or Work Experience 25.

Students may earn up to 30 credits in work experience, but the number of work experience credits that may be counted toward the Alberta High School Diploma is 15.

Please see Mr. Eng in the Media Center for details on how to sign up for Work Experience.

Work Experience 15, 25, 35

Credits: 5 per course
Prerequisite:

  • Successfully complete Workplace Safety Systems (HCS 3000)
  • Must be 15 years of age or older

Gain hands-on opportunities in various occupational areas. Develop employability skills necessary for success during and after high school. Work must be supervised by the school-based off-campus coordinator.
