Work Experience is an off-campus education program where grade 10, 11 and 12 students will be able to learn employment skills in the workplace.

Rutherford Scholarships - Work Experience can be used as one of the 1000 to 9000 series courses
The program consists of three courses - Work Experience 15, 25 and 35.
How it works:
- Complete the Workplace Safety Systems (HCS 3000) prerequisite module for Work Experience.
- Fill out and return fully completed and signed Work Experience Agreement to Mrs. Rieger or Mrs. Runco
- Bring in proof of hours (pay stubs or work schedules)
- Mrs. Runco will conduct a safety inspection of your work site and meet with you and your employer
- Begin earning credits (Work experience hours can be accumulated only after the Work Experience Agreement has been submitted)
Students may obtain between 3 to 10 high school credits in each of these courses. (25 hours of Work Experience equals one credit). A student can potentially gain 30 credits if they receive 10 credits in each of the three courses. Alberta Ed will recognize up to 15 credits towards a high school diploma.
