British Columbia is pouring $1.2 million into a program designed to get high school students to register in industry training programs.

The accelerated credit enrolment in industry training program — also known as ACE IT — will allow students to earn credit towards their high school graduation as well as credit towards the technical training component of an apprenticeship or industry training program.

Students will take classes at high schools and partnering post-secondary institutions. Through work experience placements, ACE IT participants will also be able to earn credit toward the on-the-job training component of an industry training program.
