Earn High School Credits for On-the-Job Experience
Chinook offers Fall/Winter Off-campus (Specialized) programs, Summer Off-campus, and Work Experience 15-25-35 (High School Upgrading). Teachers supervise Work Experience students while they learn employability skills and this can assist students to clarify their career aspirations and to transition from school to work. Employers become valued partners in the educational process.
In order to participate in Off-campus programs, students must secure their own paid or volunteer position acceptable to Chinook Learning Services. Student registration must be approved prior to accumulating high school credits.
Alberta Education recognizes the value of learning in a work setting where employability skills develop as part of job exploration and job training programs. Credits are submitted to Alberta Education and will be applied to the student's official Academic Transcript.
