Work Experience is one component of the Off-Campus programming offered through Buffalo Trail Public Schools.
BTPS supports the provision of Work Experience opportunities through school/community partnerships to help students acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes and to gain practical experience related to life/work skills and career opportunities. The program also provides valuable experience in the school to work transition that all students will eventually undertake.
Work Experience is defined as work-based learning undertaken by a senior high student as an integral part of a planned school program; which is under the cooperative supervision of a teacher/coordinator and constitutes a separate course based on 25 hours per credit.
Work Experience consists of three courses (15-25-35) for which HCS3000 'Work Place Safety Systems' is a prerequisite. This means that the earliest a student may consider Work Experience is in their second semester of Grade 10. Work Experience may include paid work that the student is already partaking in or it may involve supervised voluntary labour. The common thread is that the student must have a signed program agreement and contract with the division that sets out the learning required in the program.
