École Secondaire Beaumont Composite High School


Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) & Work Experience

RAP Program

The Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) provides the opportunity for students to earn senior high school credits toward an Alberta High School Diploma or a Certificate of High School Achievement, while simultaneously gaining Experience Hours that can be applied toward an apprenticeship while still in senior high school.

  • You can earn up to a maximum of 40 credits towards a high school diploma in the RAP program
  • Education through an apprenticeship in the trades IS post-secondary education Once registered, the student receives their Blue Book to log their Experience Hours. As a RAP student you can earn a salary for the 1000 hours + you will need for your Experience Hours
  • Scholarships are available
  • Skilled trades people are in short supply. A RAP apprentice gets on the job training in a skilled trade while being paid for that work
  • RAP offers an enriched, real world applicable, high school education
  • A RAP apprentice gets a realistic look at what it takes to be a journeyperson and learns employability skills that would be applicable to any job

If interested, please contact the Off-campus Coordinator, Olwen (OJ) Lepps.

Work Experience

WHAT IS WORK EXPERIENCE? Work Experience is a chance for students to earn high school credits at their regular place of employment. Supervised volunteering works too!

HOW MANY CREDITS CAN I EARN? You can earn up to 15 Work Experience credits that will apply towards your diploma requirements. You receive one credit for every 25 hours you work. You must work a minimum of 75 hours (3 credits) in order to qualify.

WHERE CAN I WORK? You can work at your regular summer job. The worksite must be pre-inspected for safety (by a Work Ex. teacher) prior to your placement being approved. Your worksite must be at a regulated business. Babysitting does not qualify for work experience.

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO SIGN UP? Please complete this google form to sign up. The deadline to sign-up for summer work experience is May 29th, 2022. You can begin to earn your hours as early as June 6, 2022. Space is limited, so we encourage you to sign up as early as possible!

ONCE I AM SIGNED UP, WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? Attend the mandatory general meeting in Mr. Lepps room (room 144) on May 30th at lunch. You will be given all the paperwork and information you need for the program at this meeting.

WHO WILL BE MY SUPERVISING TEACHER FOR WORK EXPERIENCE? This year’s supervising teachers are Mr. Lepps, Mrs. Severson, and Mrs. Nelson.

HOW AM I MARKED? You are marked on the accuracy and completion of your forms and documents, worksite evaluations, student training plan, and final evaluation.

IS THERE A PRE-REQUISITE COURSE? You must have successfully completed HCS 3000 (Workplace Safety and WHMIS) – which most of you have already done in CALM. If you have not completed HCS 3000, your Work Ex. teacher will have you complete the module online via Black Gold Moodle. It doesn’t take long! Deadline to complete HCS 3000 is Thursday, June 15th, 2023.

THIS SEEMS TOO EASY? It is this easy! That’s why you should do it. If you are working full time this summer, you could earn as many as 10 credits in 6 weeks.
