Youth Train in Trades programs allow students to receive their first year of trades technical training before they graduate and tuition-free!
Students can take a Level 1 or Foundation trades program at one of our partnering post-secondary institutions (Camosun or Vancouver Community College).
Youth Train in Trades programs are dual credit, meaning the student receives credit for the program at the post-secondary institution and their high school. In addition, the tuition for any dual credit course or program is covered by the school district. The student, however, is still responsible for a registration fee, textbooks, and equipment costs.
