Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)

Introduction notes for the employer

RAP allows students to start their career while in high school.  More information on apprenticeship training and RAP can be found at tradsecrets.alberta.ca. Students must apply online for their apprenticeship at Tradesecrets as well. If they have any questions, they should contact the off-campus coordinator.  If employers have specific apprenticeship/RAP placement questions, they may also contact Lorraine Jackson at Careers: The Next Generation.

Assessment sheet for RAP will be used as a guideline by the employer to assess the student. The final grade is still generated by the off-campus coordinator.

There are two items for assessing – employability skills and trade-related skills.  Employers need to complete both forms for their placement upon completion of each 125 hour block.  Something new has to be be added and assessed during each block of hours.  These could be employability or trade-related.  The employer should consult with the off-campus coordinator when in doubt.  These assessment forms are also the basis of the learning plan for the student.
