Also, through the Surrey school district there are over 30 apprenticeship opportunities in a wide variety of trades, as well as learning partnership opportunities with BCIT, Emily Carr University of Art & Design, Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Nicola Valley Institute of Technology and Vancouver Community College. Your child has opportunities for post-secondary learning experiences and credit provided free through their high school education
