If you are 16 years old or older and working, you may be eligible to earn CTE credit for your paid job experience.
Students must be enrolled in a qualifying CTE course or have taken a related CTE course to earn credit for work experience. For example, if you are working at a retail store and have taken a marketing class, you can earn .5 credit for every 180 hours worked (up to 2 credits a year)!
Labor & Industries has restrictions on work hours and job duties for students under 18 years old. A Parent School Authorization and VPS Off-Campus Work Based Learning forms are required. Contact your school’s Career Specialist for more information!
