Work Experience courses give students a unique opportunity to gain “on-the-job” experience in their chosen field. This improves their resumes and possibilities of employment in their chosen fields while furthering their studies. Research has shown that students who focus their studies in a specific career area that interests them are more engaged in school, do better academically and are motivated to graduate. Work Experience 12 consists of 30 hours of pre-employment instruction (resume, interviews, Worksafe BC, career exploration, post-secondary options) followed by 90 hours of work experience out in the community. The 90 hours may be obtained by working after school, weekends and holidays. However, in some cases students must miss classes to complete their placement. Successful students are those who demonstrate good attendance, responsible communication and diligent work habits in both the instruction portion and on the job.
