Check out VCC, as far as I know, no private school offers apprenticeships. Apprenticeships are not for the faint-hearted, and most are for three years. If you move around from employer to employer during those three years, it isn't a good thing.
Don't jump in head first, this isn't Europe. Check out the program, check out the employer, work at the employers as a p/t or d/w to get a feel for the place.
The restaraunt that I currently work in does do apprenticeships from VCC, so I wouldn't need to change employment if I did do that. One of my co-workers is currently doing the program, and he says it's pretty good with a lot of hands on work.
I'm headed to VCC this March for my first year’s apprenticeship training. Afterwards I'm going to be looking for a new employer in B.C, am even considering the camps. If any one has ever worked as a camp cook in BC/Alberta tell me what its like?
