Work Experience

Work Experience 12A: Students are required to complete 90 hours of work placement outside the school, plus 30 hours in school, over their grade 10, 11 and 12 years. This work experience gives students a chance to explore careers of interest to them. The course is also outside the student's regular timetable. Students will be evaluated in consultation with the employer and the student.

Career Prep Programs give students the opportunity to develop interests in career areas of their choice. Students must complete an Application Form (available from the office or their counselor) prior to enrolling in a Career Preparation Program.
