Transition Programs

1. Work in Trades is for students who know what they want to do and are ready to get to work at a solid career in a skilled trade. Work in Trades allows them to start their apprenticeship while they are in high school. Being in a Work in Trades program means that they are earning credits towards graduation while on the job accumulating hours towards their apprenticeship and getting PAID!

2. Dual Credit Programs are for students who want to get their first year of trades training during highschool.

Dual Credit programs were initiated to help high school students start on trades training while working toward graduation credits. Post secondary courses are applied to both high school graduation and the college credential!
