Adult Co-operative Education

About Co-operative Education

Co-operative Education allows students to participate in valuable learning experiences that help prepare them for the next stage of their lives, whether in apprenticeship training, college, community living, university or the workplace.  It is designed to enable students to complete credits through a combination of in-school courses, assignments, and workplace assessments. Students must be able to work independently in a workplace environment.

Program Details

Each co-op credit consists of 2 parts: 110 hours of work and assigned classroom work. Students will be required to complete a pre-placement package prior to beginning their credits, and provide their employer with an information package and ask for permission to participate in the program. Marks are assigned upon the completion of the full course of study, including the required number of work hours, the employer’s assessment, and completion of all required assessments, including weekly logs and the final project.
