SelfDesign's Work Experience (WEX) & Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) Application of Intent
The Work Experience course (WEX) and the Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) are two unique offerings that provide learners with hands-on work experience. Both happen in a real-world, workplace-based setting. Experience is gained and credits are earned towards the completion of the BC High School Dogwood diploma.

- Open to grade 10-12 learners
- Planning 10 is a pre-requisite
- Learners are required to find an employer or a co-operative placement that is to their liking
- SSA learners earn both high school credits and log up to 480 hours towards completing their apprenticeship
- WEX participation is worth two courses (8 credits) and SSA participation is worth four courses (16 credits)
