- Secondary School Credits
- The Manitoba Department of Education will recognize the recording of up to two credits on a student's transcript for work completed by Manitoba students actively involved in the Manitoba cadet programs.
The conditions for recognition are as follows:
- One credit can be recognized on the basis of successful completion of the cadet basic training program. Basic training program for Air Cadets is defined as successful completion of the Level Two program;
- An additional credit can be recognized on the basis of successful completion of the cadet advanced training program. Advanced training program for Air Cadets is defined as successful completion of the Level Four program;
- To report this credit for student record purposes the code #9982 is to be used; and
- These credits will be recognized only as additional credits beyond the minimum credits for school graduation.
Commanding Officers have been directed to provide those cadets who wish to participate in this program with a letter to their school principal indicating which level the cadet has attained.
The Manitoba Division of the Duke of Edinburgh Award reports that the Department of Education of the Province of Manitoba has confirmed that projects proposed as part of The D of E program may be eligible for credit toward graduation as part of the optional credits requirement.
Up to three credits can be obtained for Student Initiated Projects (SIP) that are developed by the student and submitted through the student's school to Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth for approval and registration, and up to one additional credit can be obtained as a Community Service SIP (required school approval).
In order to receive these credits students must follow the guidelines for submitting a SIP proposal for approval and registration of the project with Manitoba Education, Citizenship and Youth. More details on how projects may be approved for credit may be downloaded from the Department of Education.
