AP 219 - Career and Work Exploration Credit


The Career and Work Exploration Credit provides an opportunity for students to gather the skills and knowledge needed to successfully transition them into the work force.


1.  In consultation with the Career and Work Experience Teacher / Career Guidance Counselor and the student’s parents or guardians, the student will complete the AF 219.1 - Student Information Form requesting a specific placement or a focus area for placement.
2.  Upon securing the placement, the Career and Work Experience Teacher / Career Guidance Counselor will ensure completion of the AF 219.2 - Work Agreement Form. If all parties are unable to sign the same form, then a second form is used as an adjunct form.
3.  When an employer is engaged for the first time in a placement agreement with the Horizon School Division, the Career and Work Experience Teacher / Career Guidance Counselor will ensure the employer is familiar with completion of the AF 219.3 - Employer Health and Safety Orientation Checklist.. The employer will ensure the outlined areas are covered with the student. The Checklist will remain on file in support of future placements.
