Cooperative Education is designed to offer students an experiential learning opportunity that helps students earn credits towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.  This program allows students to explore potential career choices and for some, to gain work experience and develop solid skills for employment.
 
The co-op teacher will find volunteer work placements in a variety of settings such as business, government, social service agencies, education, retail, health care and trades (Apprenticeship opportunities).

Many students already have a job while they are attending school.  Students can use their existing job as their co-op placement (as long as their employer agrees to sign paperwork and evaluate).  This is referred to as specialized co-op (or paid co-op).  Specialized co-op allows students who are working many hours to still take one or two classes and still maintain full-time status as a student.

All co-op students will:

  • complete in class pre-placement sessions the first 2 weeks of the semester that includes guest speakers, on-line certifications, resumes and going over policies.
  • complete weekly log sheets tracking their hours;
  • participate in the co-op fair with poster presentation.
