Work Experience WEX12A or WEX12B (4 credits)

During Grade 11 and 12, students are placed with local employers in positions that align with their interest and future career goals.  The community becomes the classroom where students gain experience in the workplace and are provided with a frame of reference to review or revise their career goals.  Through employer assessment, students receive valuable feedback about their employability skills and technical skills related to specific occupations.

Work Experience is comprised of pre-placement classroom assignments, placement activities including successful completion of 100 hours (minimum) at a community worksite(s), and post-placement assignments.  Work Experience Teachers and the Work Experience Facilitator will work with students individually and in small groups to assist students with choosing and obtaining relevant and meaningful placements.
