Work Experience and RAP Time Sheets - Remember, if you are earning Work Experience or RAP credits, you should be submitting your signed time sheets to your Off Campus Coordinator at the end of each month. If you would like to register to earn work experience or RAP credits, your Off Campus Coordinator can help you with that, too. Remember you must register and a site visit must be completed before you can count any hours.
Green Certificate - All Green Certificate students must test at least once every year. Contact your Off Campus Coordinator to register for your next test. If you’re nervous, you can register for a practice test.
Career Conversations - Many of our schools have Learning Commons Facilitators (sometimes called Librarians) who are available to help you reflect on career paths that might be of interest to you. They can also help you access helpful resources in MyBlueprint. Don’t hesitate to stop in and see them!
Social Media - Congratulations to Yaseen Rashid, our student who won a $100 gift card in our Instagram contest. You can follow us @palliseroffcampus on Instagram or Facebook for reminders about upcoming events, scholarships and more.
