Did you know you could save thousands of dollars on post-secondary by helping your son/daughter figure out what they want to do before they finish high school?!  Your son or daughter can join the Work Experience Program (WEX) and try out potential future careers!  If this interests your son or daughter, please see a counselor to add WEX to their courses. There are classes inside and outside the timetable!

Work Experience WEX12A or WEX12B (4 credits each)

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 90 hours (minimum) at a community worksite(s), and post-placement assignments.  The Work Experience teacher 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.
