Youth Work in Trades


Youth Work in Trades provides skill development through practical, hands-on work experience.

Students enrolled in these courses go to work as a paid apprentice and attend high school at the same time.

Get a head start on the work-based training for an apprenticeship program through Youth Work in Trades and in conjunction with SkilledTradesBC

The Youth Work in Trades program is designed for those students who are currently working part time in a trade, under a certified person, or who know of someone who might hire them to work in a trade. 

It is possible for students to earn up to 16 credits while in school. Four credits are assigned for every 120 hours of work completed, up to 480 work-based training hours that count towards your trade credential.

Trades are not what they use to be. As a Youth Work in Trades student, you'll "earn while you learn."

Students who are 15 or older can enrol in this program.

Students can see their school's Careers Programs teacher for more information about Youth Work in Trades.
