The CISVA is working hard to prepare students for a successful transition to life after secondary school. It is our hope to gather a list of potential work experience placements that can be accessed by students enrolled in CISVA high schools. With your openness and support, it will provide our students with more choices and greater opportunities to gain experience in various fields of interest.
The purpose of transition planning is to prepare a student for life after high school. It is a partnership involving the individual, their family, school personnel, local service providers and government staff who support youth transitioning to adulthood.
Activities may include:
post secondary education
It is the goal of the CISVA to gather members of our community that can offer their time and support to provide meaningful work experiences for our students. The intent of the opportunities and experiences during their school years is to help them better prepare for a successful life after high school. Life after graduation includes the world of work and/or community responsibilities. Work experience placements provide a student with an opportunity to observe, learn, or participate in the tasks and responsibilities of a job or career path.
The BC Ministry of Education requires all students enrolled in grade 10, 11, and 12 to complete “Graduation Transitions” which is intended to prepare students for a successful transition to life after secondary school.
As part of the “Community Connections” component of Graduation Transitions, all students must provide evidence that they have completed any of the following:
A Ministry-authorized work experience course
A school-arranged 30 hour work placement
30 hours of volunteer or community service
30 hours of paid student employment
Students are encouraged to document their work or volunteer/community service and identify the employability skills used or developed. In addition, an evaluation report or signed form that outlines the duties and expectations, as well as that lists the dates and times worked is collected.
