Career Prep

Career Prep is short for Career Preparation, a program designed to help students prepare for future employment. The Vancouver School Board, David Thompson Secondary School, and the sponsor teachers work together to give students access to work experience at private or public companies. This gives the student exposure to what a "real" job is like. The aim is to take away some of the surprises when you apply for and get your first job.
 
Here are some key points to note about:
  • Related to a specific field (e.g.. Accounting or Computer Science).
  • In most cases, no salary is earned.
  • Must complete at least 100 hours of employment.
  • Meets Ministry of Education's 30 hour CAPP requirement when all hours are completed (must complete form from CAPP 12 teacher. CP teacher must also sign this form).
