Work Experience

Work experience allows students to gain practical knowledge, enhance their skills, confirm career decisions, and form attitudes that will assist them in their transitions from school to the world of work. Students in grade 10, 11 and 12 can enroll and earn from 3-30 credits. The prerequisite course HCS 3000 (Workplace Safety Systems) must be completed before any off-campus education credits will be awarded. Existing part-time jobs may be eligible as a work experience placement provided the student can demonstrate new learning is occurring.

Lord Beaverbrook offers Work Experience 15, 25 and 35.
