The Youth Explore Trades Sampler (YETS) course introduces students in grades 9 - 12 (primary focus is grades 10 and 11) to a variety of trades paths available at NLC. Students have the opportunity to sample various trades in order to make an informed choice. They will gain a clearer understanding of the standards, materials, instructional methods and academic performance associated with a trade, before commiting to a classic dual credit or apprenticeship educational pathway. This course provides a well aligned entry point into the Dual Credit Trades and Apprenticeship training opportunities available at Northern Lights College. Students will be introduced to 5 trades and participate in the BC Secondary School level Work Experience (WEX) program through their local school district to complete a 2 week work practicum.
