Off Campus Education

Health Services Youth Initiative

This is an opportunity for grade 11 students to explore the health industry and enhance career development through observation and experience.  This program provides an opportunity to gain work-based learning in a variety of health care settings including hospitals, labs, clinics and long term care facilities for six weeks during the summer break.  Students earn at least minimum wage and will earn high school credits.  If a student is interested in this initiative they should see their grade level administrator.

Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)

RAP opens the door for high school students to gain work experience, and develop skills and abilities in a career they are interested in pursuing after high school. In return, RAP employers pay the apprentices' wage, and provide on-the-job training in one of Alberta's 50 trades.

The time a RAP student spends at school and on the work site is quite flexible. The student, school and employer jointly agree to a suitable schedule. The student might work as a RAP apprentice for a semester, half a day, or one or two days a week. Summers, holidays and weekends are also an option to get the most out of this opportunity. Students who participate in RAP may also be eligible to earn scholarships. If a student is interested in RAP or in the RAP scholarships they should contact their grade level administrator. 

Work Experience

Work Experience allows students to explore the world of work while earning credits.  Work experience can be taken at any time during the school year.  The student can earn as many as 15 credits towards their high school diploma.  Work Experience 35 can also qualify as one of the 30 level diploma course requirements.

If a student is interested in taking Work Experience they should talk to their grade level administrator.
