Work Experience Program

What is Work Experience?

Work Experience 15–25–35 are separate courses for credit that provide experiential learning activities undertaken by a senior high school student 15 years of age or older as an integral part of a planned school program under the cooperative supervision of an off-campus education coordinator. Students can essentially earn credits while working at their part time job.

This program falls under the cooperative supervision of an off-campus coordinator and the employer’s onsite representative. It provides students opportunities to:

  • apply, in the workplace, knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired through other course work
  • discover their career interests and aptitudes in meaningful work activities, situated in community-based work stations and work sites in business, industry, government and community service.
