Camosun pilots dual credit program

November 4, 2020
Camosun College has launched a five-month pilot program that allows high school students the opportunity to take courses in technology and engineering at the postsecondary level. The program is intended to allow students to smoothly transition to postsecondary studies while simultaneously completing high school and postsecondary credits. Courses are currently online due to COVID-19, but Camosun hopes to incorporate tours, industry speakers, and work experience placements into the program when it is possible again. “When it comes to trades and technology programming, our program delivery and regional approach is unique,” says Nicola Priestley, Director, South Island Partnership at Camosun. “Our students have given us great feedback that they’re loving the Camosun courses, and they’re keen to explore electronics and computer science at a deeper level.” Camosun (BC)
