​Work Experience course is an joint effort between community businesses and schools. At Seycove, students enrolled in the Work Experience course (4 credits) will complete 100 hours of work experience at jobsite that may help them with career decisions.

Students are given assistance in job placement opportunities that are relevant to them and their focus area. Students further develop their resume and understand the importance of cover letters, thank you letters, work safety, employability skills, interview skills, and decision-making process.

Students continue to examine their appropriate career paths. Self-employed, non-profit, or eligible include:
  • Hands-on work experience (business, government, self-employed, non-profit or volunteer organization)
  • Job shadowing a worker
  • Career Mentoring with a worker
  • Career simulation activities for occupations where hands-on work experience is not available (such as the Fire Fighters Career Day)

In most cases, work experience will consist of school-arranged, non-paid placements which sometimes lead to an apprenticeship. For further information, please contact Janice Knapp, Work Experience Facilitator at 604-903-3666 Ext 807909 or email: workexperience@seycove.ca
