Believe it or not we have now reached the time where we start thinking about course registration for the next school year!
Are you, or you child interested in finding out more about program options and careers in: New Information Technologies, the Gaming Development Industry, Post-secondary Health Sciences, the Digital Arts, Robotics, Trades, or Service Industries?
In this time of rapid technological change course and program opportunities in Burnaby Schools are also changing for our students. To this end, these programs help develop a student’s ability to gain new knowledge, which has become more valuable than the knowledge itself.
Burnaby Schools Career Education Programming provides a wide range of opportunities for students in grades 8 through 12 to build the new knowledge and skills that can lead to industry certification, apprenticeship, and the development of a portfolio. These options can offer post-secondary credits and/or support application to post-secondary programs, or lead to employment.
Come meet our program teachers, industry employers and the post-secondary community on Wednesday, January 23 and learn more about technical and professional careers and the educational pathways that will lead to successful careers in these industries!
Please click here for a list of our program offerings.
We hope to see you at 6:30 pm on January 23rd at Burnaby Central.
Due to the restrictions set out by Office 365, Grad Transition projects will be PRINTED and SUBMITTED to your advisor BEFORE Friday, May 10th, 2019. Do not submit GT assignments there.
The deadline for you to complete the Career Cruising portion is STILL December 21, 2018.
If you have questions, please ask!
Thanks! Ms. Lo and Ms. Gillam
Alpha’s Post Secondary Information Evening (PSI) is on Nov 22nd (Thursday) evening. This is the third year Alpha has offered this PSI session as an evening session for parents and students can both attend. Students in grades 10-12 are encouraged to come with their parents to talk to the representatives from the BC Post Secondary Institutes of their choice in a mini fair format in the large gym. Individual presentations from UBC and SFU will also be happening on the Nov 22nd evening. This is a great opportunity for students and parents to receive information directly from a number of BC Post Secondary Institutions, especially with the changes to admissions for UBC and SFU. The information sessions from UBC and SFU will include admissions and program requirements, application processes, deadlines, and program faculty information. Please see below the schedule for the mini fair and individual presentations:
PSI Mini Fair – 6pm – 8pm (Large Gym)
UBC Presentation – 5:30pm-6:30 (Learning Commons)
SFU Presentation – 7:30pm-8:30 (Learning Commons)
