Home / School News / TASK September 2022!!


Attention Grade 10’s & 11’s!

If you’re interested in a career in trades…WE HAVE THE PROGRAM FOR YOU!!!

TASK (Trades Awareness Skill & Knowledge) will help you make an informed decision about which trade would be the best fit for you. TASK is a “hands on” program in partnership with Camosun College that focuses on four trade areas: carpentry, metal trades, electrical and plumbing. Students will get practical experience building a variety of projects such as; Sheds, Car Ports, Garages, etc. Upon successful completion of the Trades Awareness Program, students will receive Industry Training Authority (ITA) C.O.R.E. certification from Camosun College. To ensure students are “job ready”, students will also take entry-level industry certifications and go out on a work placement for two weeks. This program is one full semester and will give students up to 28 high school credits. Please contact Ms. Phillips or Mr. Huck, or your councilor if interested.

The TASK Program has been very successful since coming to the SD 62 high schools several years ago.  A large amount of our students have successfully transitioned straight from this program into local industry jobs, often earning ITA apprenticeships, full time employment and post-secondary training at Camosun subsidized by the school district.

This year more than any other might be the right time to make this decision. If you’re interested, please connect with Ms. Phillips tphillips@sd62.bc.ca or connect with their school counsellor.  This is a fantastic program – don’t miss out on an opportunity that be life changing!
