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.
