Trades Experience - Youth Work in Trades Program

Any student who was or is working part time - or full time during the summer - with a ticketed tradesperson is eligible for the Youth Work In Trades Program. Students may earn up to 16 high school credits (four senior courses), while also accumulating apprenticeship hours with SkilledTradesBC, giving them a "head start" if they choose to pursue an apprenticeship in a recognized trade.

To enrol in the program students must be:

  • Working or have worked in a paid position, with worksafe coverage (includes honorariums)
  • Working or have worked with a qualified tradesperson (journeyperson or Red Seal)

With 900 hours and a C+ average on grade 12 courses students also qualify for a $1,000 award from the government, received after graduation.

Who Attends: This is an opportunity for students 15 years and older who meet the enrolment criteria stated above

Date: Students can enrol any time during the year through their school TnT coordinator, or by emailing the District Trades and Transitions Department.
