UFCW Canada members, their families, and the union’s social justice partners are now free to sign-up for two new highschool online webCampus courses.
The two new highschool online courses currently offered through webCampus are Travel & Tourism, and Living Space & Shelter.
The highschool online Travel & Tourism course examines the unique characteristics of selected world regions from a geographic perspective and will develop an understanding and appreciation for the ways in which the natural environments, economies, cultures and other aspects of the world’s regions interact.
The highschool online Living Spaces & Shelter course is designed to help students make practical decisions about where to live and how to create functional and pleasing environments, and focuses on occupational opportunities related to housing and design.
Living Space & Shelter and Travel & Tourism prepares students with the knowledge and skills required to meet the entrance requirements for a variety of college programs. This course is fully accredited and can be applied to the completion of a High School Diploma.
Highschool online courses are open for registration and are running until March 31, 2011.
