Off-Campus Education & Work Experience

Off-Campus Education

Students have multiple off-campus options to choose from depending on their interests: mastering a trade, working in agriculture, getting a head start in a post-secondary program, and more.

Off-Campus Education for PSD high schools is managed at the Division level and includes:

  • Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)
  • Green Certificate Program
  • Dual Credit Program

Please visit the Off-Campus Education Program page on the Parkland School Division website for complete information.

Work Experience 15-25-35

Up to 30 Credits

Through the Work Experience Program, students are given the opportunity to further their education through an off-campus placement in an occupation. Students are able to sample and try out their future interests while still attending school.

Some expectations are:

  • The student will find out about an occupation of his/her interest by having an opportunity to participate in meaningful work at a job site.
  • The student will gain an understanding of the importance of developing acceptable work habits, good grooming and need for self-discipline.
  • The student will develop positive attitudes towards people.
  • The student will learn about the organization of business and the relationships of employee to employer, unions and government through direct contact with these agencies.

Up to 30 credits can be earned, of which 15 will count towards a high school diploma in the program. Hours of work when Work Experience students can be in attendance range from 7am to 10pm, Monday through Sunday. One credit is earned per 25 hours worked.

Students who need two Grade 12 30-level courses for graduation purposes can enroll in a 10-credit WE35 course and must take a compulsory 1-credit HCS 3000 Workplace Safety System module.
