Youth Train/Work in Trades

Formerly ACE-IT

The Youth Train in Trades and Youth Work in Trades programs are open to students in Grade 11 or 12.  All programs include a combination of course work and work experience leading to graduation and recognized industry certification.

All programs are considered “Dual-Credit” Programs, as students receive graduation credits, PLUS Industry credits.  Students will also acquire Work-Based Training hours credited towards apprenticeship requirements.

If you are interested in applying for any of the programs below, you should attend the Information Evening in January 2018 (Date TBA) at Burnaby Central Secondary School at 6:30pm.  You should also submit a completed Application Package to the Moscrop Career Centre in Room 313.  Students will also go through an interview with the Career & Transitions Program Consultant and teacher.
