WORK EXPERIENCE credits, anyone?!
You can receive up to 15 credits towards your high school diploma just from doing a great job at work or with your volunteer organization? You must complete the required one credit safety course (Workplace Safety Systems) prior to receiving Work Experience Credits. Did you know that WE 35 (Work Experience 35) can be used as one of the grade 12 courses you can use for your application to the U of L? It can also increase your overall average so that you are eligible for more scholarship dollars! See your friendly Career Practitioner for more information.
