Co-operative Education for Students
Want to get real work experience and earn high school credits at the same time? Want to see what working in a variety of careers is really like?
Whether you want to be an accountant, hairstylist, carpenter, or zoologist there’s a co-op course for you.
You can take co-op courses as long as you’re:
16 years of age or be 15 and in Grade 11 before the Co-op placement begins
in Grade 10, 11 or 12
able to work independently
Here’s what you get:
real work experience
skills you will use the rest of your life
information that will help you decide what to do after graduation
contacts in the working world
The more co-op courses you take, the more you learn about different careers so you can decide what’s right for you. Your co-op work placement may take place during or after school hours, on weekends, and during vacations.
