Career Education Department Overview
Sea to Sky Career Education (SSCE) offers three different programs for high school students looking to gain valuable work experience or an apprenticeship while acquiring high school and post-secondary credits. SSCE programs give youth the opportunity to try out different trades or work environments to get a head start on their career.
