Learning for a Lifetime
​Youth WORK in Trades Program


Youth WORK in Trades isn't a traditional high school course.  ​Students in this program already have a paid job with an experienced tradesperson and complete the coursework online through Coquitlam Open Learning.

Students that work in an apprenticeable trade with ​a certified tradesperson, ​can:

  • gain high school credits (up to 16) that count towards graduation;
  • learn and apply specific skills while getting paid;
  • earn hours towards trade certification;
  • qualify for a $1000 award from the Ministry of Education.

Click here for the req​uirements to earn the $1000 Youth WORK in Trades Award.

If you have a paid job in trades, please complete the WORK in Trades Survey or scan​ this QR code:​
