Co-operative education is a unique educational process designed to promote skill development, individual career exploration, and self-awareness. High school students earn credits while taking part in a work placement over the course of a semester.
The advantages of a co-operative education work placement:
1. Allows students to explore careers
2. Provides students with hands-on experience in the workforce
3. Allows students to communicate with experienced people in the field
4. Opens up opportunities for future employment
5. Allows students to secure or continue an apprenticeship
Please note that multiple co-operative education credits can count toward the high school diploma.
