Work Experience is a for-credit high school program. It allows students to explore a career path they are interested in and to get ahead of the game with valuable skills training.
Students are employed as part of a planned school program under the cooperative supervision of a teacher and employer. Participants gain experience, build marketable job skills and earn high school credits as well.
Sturgeon Composite partners with community organizations to offer students the following work experience opportunities:
- Sturgeon County Emergency Services – Volunteer Fire Fighting
- RCMP Spring Break Academy
- Alberta Agriculture Green Certificate
- Health Internship
- Bold Eagle Program
Students with part-time jobs may also appreciate the opportunity to earn work experience credits through their learning on the job.
