To learn more about the requirements and how to register in any of the following programs please make an appointment with the Career Education Team located in the Guidance Department.
Credit for Employment (CFE)
The CFE offers students the opportunity to earn high school credits in an authentic paid work environment. Students will find their own employer and earn up to 2 credits based on the number of hours worked. These courses allow students to develop essential and employability skills and apply health and safety awareness to their workplace experience.
By locating and participating in paid employment, students will have an opportunity to apply knowledge and skills they learned in the Career Development Life/Work courses. Students will also benefit from valuable work experience and employer feedback that will contribute to their career/life planning.
Career Development Internship (CDI)
The CDI offers students the opportunity to participate in an unpaid internship placement in a career of their interest, all while earning high school credits.
Internship credits integrate career development theory, knowledge, essential skills, employability skills, and attitudes with meaningful learning experiences in an internship setting. The knowledge, skills, and attitudes acquired through internships can increase students’ competence and confidence, and provide more awareness of the expectations of a profession and the employment opportunities that exist in their community, as well as the educational and training requirements for these opportunities.
Work Experience Placements
Work placements are one of several ways of achieving the teaching/learning goals, objectives, and/or outcomes stated in the Manitoba Curriculum. While most commonly implemented in vocational programming, work placements can be utilized in any eligible curricula.
Work placement is neither a program nor a course. There is no provincial work placement curriculum. Rather, it is a means of achieving teaching/learning goals, objectives, and/or outcomes within existing courses. Work placement should be used in conjunction with other instructional strategies to provide diverse learning experiences that support all kinds of learners.
High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP)
The High School Apprenticeship Program falls within the Senior Years Technology Education Program. In Manitoba, apprenticeship training is administered by the Apprenticeship Branch of Manitoba Entrepreneurship, Training and Trade.
Apprenticeship is paid on the job-training in a specific trade, such as construction, cooking, electrical work, plumbing, hairstyling etc. It is a training relationship involving an apprentice (student worker), an employer, and the Apprenticeship Branch. An employer hires an apprentice to meet an existing or projected skill need. A contractual arrangement is established among the employer, the apprentice, and the Apprenticeship Branch.
The HSAP is an extension and enhancement of regular apprenticeship training and is an integration of institutional education and the workplace. This work experience provides students with credits that can be used towards continued apprenticeship training after high school graduation.
Community Service Student-Initiated Project (CSSIP)
Students can contribute to their community by volunteering for worthwhile causes or organizations. The civic knowledge, skills, and attitudes obtained from such community service activities can increase a student’s self-esteem and maturity and provide more awareness of the needs of others in the community.
