Work Experience

Work Experience 12A & 12B are 4-credit courses that enable you to experience 100-120 hours of work experience all the while learning new skills in a cooperative partnership between the student, the school and the employer.

Benefits of Work Experience:

  • Make future decisions based on a realistic understanding of the workplace
  • Develop qualities and skills that are transferable to employment and career development
  • Obtain references and contacts for future employers
  • Develop self-confidence and self-awareness
  • Support the transition from school to work, Youth Work in Trades or further education
