Students who are working in the trade and not involved in one of our ACE-IT programs are eligible to take their Level 1at a post secondary institution at no cost. However, in most cases I would need 4 to 5 months notice. The Level 1 training at the post secondary normally runs between 6 to 8 weeks.eg. Heritage Woods student
Students who are working in an apprenticeable trade can earn up to 16 credits towards graduation. Also the hours accrued count towards their Level 1 Work Base Training. See Brett or Doug
Over the last year we have had many students sign up for WEX with no intention of a career exploration. These students have paying jobs and want to count their job for credit. In certain cases it can count if it matches their focus area on the 1701. eg. Teaching swimming lessons for someone who wants to be a teacher. However, the hours can not be retroactive and a training plan must be completed by the employer. In some cases we will only count 50% of their paying job.
A great way for a student to explore a career!! Must have 30 hour pre employment course Most likely student must be timetabled manually to accommodate work experience.
