The calendar/schedule for CTC students is slightly different than the that of the School District. The below calendar contains important dates, including holidays and start/end dates.
The CTC Program is dual-credit, which means the credits that students earn at CNC translate into high school credits. The below document is for counsellors and school systems admins to reference when entering grades.
The Industry Training Authority (ITA) is the provincial organization that coordinates British Columbia's skilled trades system. The ITA website is a great resource for trades program outlines, apprenticeship registration, and accessing your trades transcript.
Remember, we need a journey persons name, TQ number and signature to report the hours to ITA. We will not accept your work based training forms without this information. If you or your employer have any questions regarding this form please don't hesitate to contact the CTC office and we'll be happy to explain the process.
If you lost your ITA registration cards you must fill out a ITA replacement form and submit it to the ITA with payment. The CTC office will have your ITA number on file. When CTC students with ITA registration cards find an employer or change employers they must provide ITA with the name of their new employer and submit the appropriate ITA form.
On completion of Grade 12 you will receive credit for your program at CNC.
If you wish to continue your apprenticeship, the first thing to do is find an employer willing to sponsor you. They must register as your sponsor with the ITA using the APPRENTICE/SPONSOR REGISTRATION FORM. To register for your next levels at the College of New Caledonia, you must submit a NEW CNC APPLICATION. Visit the CNC Trades Website to learn more.
Below are scholarship and bursary options available to CTC students. To apply for a scholarship or bursary, please visit Financial aid.
Jim Rose was the coordinator of the CTC from its inception in 1998 until he retired in December 2004. Jim's unfailing dedication, his tireless drive to promote the CTC's programs and assist its students and his tenacity in helping fund students in need are the inspiration for the Jim Rose Legacy Endowment Fund / Tuition Credit. This award will provide a perpetual source of funding as a tuition credit for a CTC student.
Open to any student in the Career Technical Centre (CTC) program, attending the College of New Caledonia with demonstrated financial need.
Selection will be made primarily on the basis of financial need. Students attending the CTC program at the College of New Caledonia need to complete a college bursary application and must have successfully completed the first semester of their Grade 11 year before the tuition credit is granted.
Selection will be made by the College of New Caledonia CTC program Advisory Committee.
Secondary School Apprenticeship Program means an educational program that consists of workplace based training where secondary students register as apprentices with the industry authority (ita); (ministerial order 282 04).
Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) program involves part-time work within a trade - something many secondary students are doing already. You might already be a secondary school apprentice and not even know it!
If you are still a high school student working part-time in a trade, you are probably a 'hidden apprentice'. By registering as a SSA student, you will be able to earn dual credit for the work you're already doing, become eligible for a $1000 scholarship, and get a head start on earning your trade certification.
To register for SSA you must contact the School District Career Programs Office at 250-564-3121.
All BC and Red Seal Trades qualify as SSA program trades.The below is just an example of some trades that will qualify. For a full list visit www.itabc.ca
To qualify for SSA funding, you must be between 15 and 19 years old, be registered in School District 57, and have an employer that will sponsor you.
