A great story from Village 900 Radio’s Blog. The Ace-It program is one of the ways that BC’s colleges support students is through transition or dual credit programs created through partnerships with local school districts. These programs help to prepare secondary students for post-secondary education by offering relevant programming that moves students in to the workplace faster and with the necessary skills.
“I’m so glad I did ACE-IT instead of just regular grade 12 – I’m doing something I love,” she says. “I wanted to come to school every day.” In grade 10, Victoria participated in a trades co-op program, earning credits by completing a three-week work placement at Steve Marshall Ford, changing oil and learning what she could from the veteran mechanics in the shop.
