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. Students are considered covered by Workers Compensation Board only if all information provided is accurate and signatures of the Supervising Instructor and Principal have been provided.

Manitoba Education and Training does not provide Workers Compensation Board coverage for paid employment or Community Service Student-Initiated Projects (CSSIP).

Effective July 2018, we will only be accepting the following forms:

The following are the necessary instructions and information sheets for the 2018-2019 school year (up to June 30, 2019):
