Skills Training in High School

If you’re a high school student and are interested in building your skills for a future career in the trades, there are options for you such as:

  • The High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP)
  • The In-School Accredited Technical Vocational Training Program

Read the information below to find out which program might be a good fit for you!

High School Apprenticeship Program

The High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP) lets you start apprenticeship while you are still in high school. It links regular Senior Years school instruction with paid, part-time, on-the-job apprenticeship training. You need a qualified and insured employer who will train you as an apprentice.

The HSAP coordinator at Apprenticeship Manitoba will work with you, your employer, and your school Guidance Counsellor to ensure that you meet all academic graduation requirements, and work while you are completing your high school program.

Depending on the high school, you can find numerous HSAPs opportunities within Manitoba. Explore the links below to learn which school offer Apprenticeship Manitoba accredited programming in your trade:

HSAP graduates who complete trades training at these secondary schools should receive their Level 1 with Apprenticeship Manitoba. Always contact Apprenticeship Manitoba if you have any questions about the programs below and/or satisfying apprenticeship level requirements.

Benefits to HSAP

  • Earn up to eight supplemental academic credits for graduation
  • Have the chance to use state-of-the-art technology at work
  • Be paid a trade-specific rate of pay that is more than minimum wage
  • Use this work experience to get a full-time job
  • Apply your on-the-job hours to full-time apprenticeship training after graduation
  • Earn credits for your work experience if you later decide to be an apprentice in another trade
  • Use the skills you learn for a career in management or to start your own business
