VSB Career Programs

VSB Career Programs 

 

If you’re considering a career path in the skilled trades, technology, fashion design, or health care, VSB Career Programs are the way to go!  They offer training programs you can complete during grade 12 at either VCC, BCIT, the Piping Industry College, or a VSB school.  Here are a few key points to consider.  By considering these opportunities now in Grade 10, you will be able to prepare and plan better for your Gr. 11 and 12 years: 

  • You’ll earn both high school and post-secondary credit at the same time 
  • Your tuition is paid by the VSB for these programs 
  • You could start a paid apprenticeship while earning credits toward graduation 
  • Some programs are full-time at VCC or BCIT, while others are split between Point Grey and another VSB school 
  • All of these programs lead to graduation and a post-secondary credential 

  

Now is the time to start thinking about this opportunity! These career options are the kind that have grown during the pandemic and offer economic stability and plenty of job opportunities. 

  

These programs can only be funded during your grade 12 year. Application deadlines are in December and March of your grade 11 year. You are encouraged, however, to apply in grade 10. For more information, contact Mr. Cordoni and visit https://www.vsb.bc.ca/site/Career-Programs/programs/Pages/default.aspx

Onlline mentorship program for high school students

Finding the career field that interests you is quite difficult. As students, we rarely get the chance to dive deep into what each job has to offer. The Youth Career Mentorship provides participants with the opportunity to speak with and ask questions to a workforce professional in a field of their choosing. This enables students to seek valuable career and school advice as well as gain a better understanding of the jobs that interest them.

Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance

The Vancouver School District, as a partner school board, provides parents with the opportunity to purchase insurance coverage through Kids Plus™. The main website http://kidsplus.ca is available for parents to access information about purchase coverage; claims forms and full plan information online.

The Vancouver School District is offering you the opportunity to voluntarily purchase student accident insurance through the Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance program, underwritten by Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services.

Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance provides protection against unexpected costs arising from accidental injuries.  The program is especially valuable for families who do not have medical or dental plans; have limited plans; or have active children who enjoy sports and outdoor activities.

Kids Plus™ Accident Insurance has a selection of plans to suit most budgets.  Benefits include:

  • Coverage for the full school year (September to September), 24 hours a day, while at home and in school;
  • Expenses that are often limited or not covered by private or group insurance plans, or Provincial Health Insurance, such as physiotherapy, private tutoring, counselling, and much more;
  • Injury-related dental treatment;
  • Out-of-province or country emergency medical expenses.

Insurance premiums for children are $14.50 or $33.50/year, depending upon plan.  Adults 20-64 can also be insured for $32/year.
