High School Apprenticeship Program (SYAR41)
HSAP is another means for a student to earn credits by starting apprenticeship training while still in high school. It allows the motivated student an opportunity to combine their regular high school instruction with paid, part-time, on-the-job training in one of fifty apprenticed trades. The course is completed in the community and is therefore not scheduled into the regular timetable. Participation in the program is dependent on a student's ability to secure a job with an apprenticed employer. Please visit: www.apprenticemanitoba.ca or room 234 - the Career Education Centre - for complete program details.
High School Apprenticeship is an optional credit that would be completed over a two year period – your grade 11 and 12 years. The course would start in the November of your grade 11 year with you meeting a career educator to determine a school/work plan for the next two years. A student will earn a credit for every 110 hours that they work on the job. Many students start the program during the second semester of grade 11 by finding a employer, and then earn credits and a wage during their grade 11 summer and work part-time in during grade 12. Others choose to complete their academic courses during the first term of grade 12 and then become apprentices during their last semester of grade 12.
Career Development (LWBR3S)
Students participate in several career related experiences designed to create a smooth transition from high school to post-secondary training and employment. The career counsellor and student develop a series of opportunities for the motivated student to mentor, complete work Experience, volunteer and job shadow and participate in post-secondary visitations related to their chosen career area. The majority of this course is completed in the community and is therefore not scheduled into the regular timetable. The pace at which students complete this course is determined by their after school availability.
Career Development is an optional credit that would be completed over your grade 11 and 12 years. The course would start in November of your grade 11 year with a meeting with a career educator to plan activities related to your career choice. These activities will be completed on a student’s non-scheduled school time – in-service days, late afternoons, evenings, weekends, holidays, and days when exams are not scheduled.
