The Grande Prairie Public School Division supports the provision of off-campus education opportunities through school and community partnerships to help students acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes and gain practical experience related to life skills and career opportunities. Off-campus education includes work study, work experience programs, registered apprenticeship programs/youth internship programs.
According to Alberta Education, off-campus education provides opportunities for junior and senior high school students to explore and expand their career interests, skills and knowledge related to work and other life roles.
At Grande Prairie Public, we believe that providing students with many learner and career pathway opportunities while they are in high school allows students to explore their future possibilities now. These types of opportunities lead to students experiencing real life looks at the world of careers and work beyond high school.
