Adult High School Programs
Our Adult High School Credit Programs are intended to assist our members and others in the labour movement wishing to obtain individual credits or a complete high school diploma.
We offer a supportive, adult-centered environment that recognizes the needs and challenges of working adults that are returning to school. Our commitment is to promote lifelong learning in a progressive and learner-centered environment.

Who offers this program?
The UFCW Training Centre, in partnership with The Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology and Assiniboine Community College, offers its members an adult high school credit program that is recognized by the province of Manitoba, universities, community colleges and employers alike. You can take individual courses or work towards your entire diploma.
You can take courses…
- If you are over 19 and even if you have not completed high school
How many credits can be done at once?
That’s up to you! Your course load will depend on:
- How busy you are with other responsibilities
- How much time you want to spend on your courses
Most people take one or two courses at a time so that they can complete two or three credits a year. You can also earn credits by doing special projects on your own time or by doing a heritage language exam. Some credits from Grades 9, 10, 11 or 12 can be transferred.
Other ways to earn credits…
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition – if you already have good computer skills you may be able to earn credit without taking a course. Ask us how!
Heritage Language Exams – students who are fluent in a foreign language (other than English or French) may take an exam (written and oral) for credit.
Community Service Credit – students may wish to do some community service equivalent to 110 hrs and receive credit for this. This is a project that requires approval by Manitoba Education, Training and Youth, so you are not able to receive credit for previous community service.
Student Initiated Projects – students can earn a credit for doing a project of their choice. This too requires the approval of the Department of Adult Education and Literacy. This allows students to explore potential careers they may be considering or just do research on a topic of interest to them.
Tutoring – (Winnipeg only) for any students struggling to keep up in their classroom, we do provide tutoring. This service is free to students.
