New Westminster Schools offers Apprenticeship Programs in partnership with the Industry Training Authority (ITA – BC’s crown corporation for the post-secondary path of apprenticeship).

These programs enable students to earn their first year of technical training while still in high school for dual credit.

In addition, students may also earn credit for their on-the-job learning as an apprentice and even work toward a $1000 Youth Work in Trades Award.

In January of each year, we hold an information session to help walk students and parents through the opportunities and processes. Here is the recording from January 2023:
