In Search of the Hidden Apprentice
Parents: Did you Know?
In an effort to promote the Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) program, Greater Victoria School District is searching for “Hidden Apprentices”. If your son/daughter is a secondary school student working in a trade area, they may already be eligible to become a secondary school apprentice and not know it.
A secondary school apprenticeship involves part-time work within a trade – something they may already be doing. The SSA program provides a smooth transition from school to work, and a quicker route to certification in a trade – and to the earning power that goes with it. The student can begin his/her apprenticeship as early as Grade 10.
As an added bonus, as a secondary school apprentice completing all the requirements can qualify for a $1000 scholarship
To find out more about the Secondary School Apprenticeship Program please contact the school @ 250 479-8271 and ask for Richel Condie in the Career Centre.
