Policy and Planning

Work Placement

Work placement is one of several delivery mechanisms that may be used to achieve the teaching/learning goals, objectives, and/or outcomes stated in department-developed, -registered, or -approved curricula and/or courses.

Work placement is neither a program nor a course. There is no provincial work placement curriculum. Local curricula/courses that utilize work placement as one of several means for achieving teaching/learning goals, objectives and/or outcomes are encouraged and are eligible for consideration for Departmental registration or approval. Work placement should be used in conjunction with other delivery mechanisms such as direct instruction, computer-guided learning, or small group work to provide learning experiences that support students in progressing and achieving relative to curricula/course goals, objectives, and/or outcomes.

Manitoba Education and Training maintains a database containing all work placement student registrations and accident data. Therefore, it is important that all information be completed on the registration forms, including the four-digit school code assigned to each school for various recording purposes. Students are considered covered by Workers Compensation only if all information is provided on the forms and the forms are signed.

Please note: Effective July 2018, we will only be accepting electronic Work Placement Registration Forms, Work Station Confirmation Forms, and WBC incident forms.

The following are the necessary instructions, information sheets and forms for the 2017-2018 school year:
