Sturgeon Public Schools’s Off-Campus Education programs follow the Alberta Education Program of Studies and offer experiential learning that integrates planned learning with on-the-job work experiences. High school students gain practical experience as they apply and expand their knowledge, skills and attitudes through educational experiences in community-based work or volunteer sites.
Off-Campus Education is offered through a number of different programs including Work Experience, Registered Apprenticeship Program, RCMP Youth Academy, Sturgeon County Firefighters and Emergency Services and Green Certificate Agricultural Training.
Students earn one credit for 25 hours of work (minimum 75 hours) to a maximum of 10 credits at each level – 15, 25 and 35 level. Only 15 credits count towards a high school diploma.
Off-Campus Education runs throughout the school year, as well as the summer months, and is supervised by the Off-Campus Education Coordinator who monitors and maintains contact with both employer and student.
Note: Workplace Safety Systems: HCS3000 is a one credit pre-requisite course required for any off-campus program.
