Adult Co-operative Education
Co-operative education for adult students is offered through our Bridges to Success (BTS) program (18 to 20 year olds) or through our Adult Credit Class (21 years of age and older) . 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. Registered students who are working in either a paid or volunteer position are eligible to participate in this program. 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.
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.
