Cooperative Education
 
What is Cooperative Education (Co-op) programming?
 
Co-op is educational programming that integrates classroom theory with practical experience in the workplace.
 
Programming is based on a partnership between the school and a business or community organization.
 
It involves the participation of students, teachers and the workplace (placement supervisors).
 
It is a credit-earning program.
 
 
Who is it for?
 
The program is primarily geared for students in Grade 11 and 12.
 
Regardless of the post-secondary destination of choice all students can benefit from a co-op experience.
 
 
What are the benefits?
Co-op provides you with an opportunity to:
 
·         develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes through hands-on experience;
·         explore a career in order to make informed educational and career decisions;
·         develop maturity and self-confidence;
·         strengthen employability skills;
·         gain valuable work experience;
