Co-operative Education

Welcome to Co-Operative Education

Co-op allows students to experience a career while gaining hands-on opportunities and developing employability and leadership skills.

How does the program work? Students:

  • are timetabled for a two period block as they are earning two (2) credits or a four period block and they can earn four (4) credits

  • spend the first two weeks of the semester completing pre-placement work in high school with the co-op teacher

  • complete an interview with the potential placement supervisor

  • begin their placement and work in order to accumulate the necessary hours and meet the key learnings as set out on their Personalized Placement Learning Plan

Cooperative Education is an experiential learning program that enables students to 'test drive' a career in order to assist them in developing post-secondary plans. Coop is beneficial not only to students, but to our community partners as well.

The following is a list of some of the potential placements available to our students:
