Co-operative Education

A+ A-

Our co-operative education teachers work under the Student Services department. For more details, please click here.


The co-operative educational curriculum is based on the belief that students will learn valuable employment skills through practical work experiences. Students will gain confidence in their abilities to work with others in a real workplace experience. Students will become better citizens in their community and beyond by making connections with those who are making their community a better place.

The curriculum is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills that they need to achieve this goal.
It aims to help students become successful by developing employability skills, making students aware of workers rights and responsibilities, having students learn about workplace safety issues to ensure a future that is healthy for the student.

Successful co-op students:

  • understand that they must attend their workplace as if they are an employee, including calling their employer and the co-op teacher if they are ill or unable to attend a co-op placement
  • will hand in their log sheets each week to record the hours they have worked
  • will complete their store front presentations as a culminating activity for this course
