Career Programs

Esquimalt Career and Transition Programs prepare students for success after secondary school, whether their next step is post-secondary or the work force. Career & Transition Programs are ideally suited for grade 10, 11 and 12 students with a positive attitude and a desire to learn. All of our career programs help students learn the core skills needed for a chosen career field, and frequently include hands-on work experience with local industry.

Programs offered at Esquimalt High School:

District Programs available to Esquimalt High School students:



You can save time and money by taking Dual Credit programs and courses offered through the South Island Partnership (SIP). You’ll be a college student while you’re still working on completing high school.

Dual Credit opportunities are available in trades, technology, health & human services, business, sport & exercise and arts & science university transfer. In many programs, Camosun reserves seats especially for SIP students.

Each school district offers different choices, and in most cases, you can apply for any SIP Dual Credit program, even if it’s not offered in your own school district. Some classes are held in a high school, others at Camosun, and sometimes both locations are used. You can choose to take one individual course offered in the evening after school, or a full-time program that runs in parallel to your school timetable. There are also online courses available.
