ENGLISH AS AN ADDITIONAL LANGUAGE (EAL) The purpose of this program is to develop listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills necessary for the academic and social success of students who have recently arrived in Canada and have a limited proficiency in the English language. Integration into mainstream subjects occurs as students become more proficient in communication. Placement of Students: Students with limited proficiency in English are interviewed, tested, and their previous academic records are evaluated. On the basis of this assessment, the students are placed into courses appropriate to their skill levels. Placements are flexible and student progress is examined at the end of each semester. E -designated courses follow the Manitoba Education & Training approved curriculum for Grades 9-12 English/geography/history/math/science but have been adapted to assist students for whom English is an additional language. (Such adaptations may include the development of learning strategies and specialized academic vocabulary to build comprehension and overall language skills.) Therefore, they can be used to meet core requirements for high school standing. Upon successful completion, students may enroll in the mainstream content subject at the same level OR proceed to the next level either in an EAL or a mainstream setting. Students currently enrolled in an EAL course who wish to move a regular (non EAL) English course require the permission of the English department head and must first take a written assessment. ENGLISH LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION ENGLISH EAL 11G/21G BEGINNER (ENBU 1G/2G) (SIC) Prerequisite: Recommendation from EAL Dept./Counsellor This is the entry level class for beginners to learn to communicate in English. It is designed for students who have little or no knowledge of English. Emphasis at this level is on the development of oral language skills and the acquisition of functional English. The focus is on sounds, alphabet, survival vocabulary, and simple sentences. In addition, students will be introduced to basic grammar and writing skills and strategies for reading comprehension. ENGLISH EAL 31G/41G LOW/MID INTERMEDIATE (ENIU 3G/ENAU 4G) (SIC) Prerequisite: Recommendation from the EAL Dept./Counsellor Students recommended to take these courses have met the required language outcomes at the beginner level. Although students have acquired a certain degree of proficiency in the use of the English language, they require a larger academic vocabulary and more mature language skills to ensure success in mainstream classes. Students will focus on mastering more advanced grammar, developing more complex sentence structures, and building a more sophisticated vocabulary. ~21~

22 E DESIGNATED COURSES: ACADEMIC COURSES ADAPTED FOR EAL STUDENTS ENGLISH 10E, 20E, 30E, 40E (ENGR 1E/2E/3E/ENGC 4E) Prerequisite: ENAU 4G or recommendation from EAL Dept.

RED RIVER COLLEGE APPRENTICESHIP INFORMATION Apprenticeship programs provide Manitobans with recognized certification as skilled journeypersons and ensure that qualified trades professionals are available to meet industry requirements for workers in the skilled trades. Apprenticeship comprises over fifty trades and sub-trades designated under the Manitoba Apprenticeship and Certification Act. Apprenticeship training combines on the job practical skills development with levels of technical training. Program standards and curriculum are approved by the Apprenticeship and Certification Board, on the recommendation of Provincial Advisory Committees, whose members represent Manitoba industry. Apprenticeship training varies from two to five levels, depending on the trade. The average length of apprenticeship training is four levels. For each level, apprentices spend 80 percent of their time learning practical skills on the job. The remaining 20 percent is for technical training which is usually four to ten weeks. Many of the apprenticeship technical training courses are administered in fulltime day classes by Red River College. At the end of apprenticeship training, apprentices write a certification examination and must score at least 70 per cent to receive a Certificate of Qualification in the trade. ~42~

43 The technical training courses provide instruction in the practice and theory of the trade together with related courses such as mathematics, science, blueprint reading, and in some trades, welding and machining. Successful results on certification examinations, combined with specific skills learned on the job, qualify the apprentice as a skilled journeyperson. An apprentice can receive certification in over 50 trades, many that include Interprovincial (Red Seal) status. The Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program was established to provide greater mobility for skilled workers and also encourages the standardization of Provincial/Territorial training and certification programs. Entrance Requirements To enter apprenticeship training, an individual must first find an employer who is positive about on-the-job training and is willing to enter into an apprenticeship agreement. Apprenticeship Manitoba, Entrepreneurship Training and Trade provides information and assistance in establishing an apprenticeship agreement, monitors the on-the-job training and makes arrangements for the inschool training. The employer agrees to give specific on-the-job training for the apprentice in all areas of the trade. For the majority of trades, the minimum age requirement is 16 years. It is recommended that applicants have successfully completed high school. Because apprenticeship trades involve technical components, it is important to have high school credits in math and science. Those with mature student status, over 19 years of age, regardless of completed grade level, may be required to participate in an assessment process. For more information on entrance requirements for a particular trade, please contact Apprenticeship Manitoba. Employment Potential An individual who successfully completes an apprenticeship is granted certification of qualification in a chosen trade. This certificate, recognized by employers and the public, identifies the holder as a journeyperson. In most trades, a journeyperson can qualify for interprovincial or "Red Seal" standing if the final exam mark is 70 percent or higher.
