Our career camps generally accept students from grades 9-12.
Will my students be paid for their work in a CAREERS internship or apprenticeship?
Yes. All students receive a fair wage or honorarium for their work in our internships or apprenticeships. Please note that the Registered Apprenticeship Program requires a 125-hour trial period during which payment is at the employer's discretion. Students will earn five credits for the trial period.
How can CAREERS help me place my students in an internship program?
CAREERS’ help placing students begins with workshops to educate students and parents about career paths in the trades, industrial technologies and health services.
CAREERS also recruits employers to take on student interns and can help you interviews students for placements.
After the internship begins, your CAREERS field director will support you in liaising with the employer if necessary.
To get started, book an in-class workshop or parent evening with CAREERS.
