An apprenticeship is a paid occupational training program that combines supervised on-the-job training experience with classroom instruction. Students must be 18 years old and have a high school diploma to qualify. Apprenticeships are offered in most of the union trades i.e. plumbing, electrical, sheet metal, construction.
Job Shadow Opportunities
Job shadowing is an opportunity for students to visit a business, non-profit or government agency to learn first hand what employees do on a daily basis. Job shadows will last no more than three (3) hours. This will give students time to observe activities, ask prepared questions, gain a better understanding of what employers do in the world of work, and practice interview skills.
Work Experience Opportunities
Students, Employers and the School to Work Coordinator strive for the best possible work experience for each student. Time is spent analyzing progress and successes. Work Experience credit is earned at the rate of .5 credit for 90 hours worked. A total of four (4) credits may be earned. College Now/Tech Prep credit is available.
