Co-operative Education for Parents

High school graduation is not that far away! Do you know what’s next for your child?
Co-operative education helps students decide by giving them first-hand experience in the workplace.
They also learn valuable skills that can be used right away in their search for part-time or summer work:
  • résumé and cover letter writing
  • interview techniques
  • self-assessment tools
  • goal setting
Plus, they learn about health and safety and workplace ethics. There are a wide variety of community placements available. Teachers do their best to match student’s knowledge, skills, abilities, personality, and interests to placements that may be the best fit.
Students learn in their own communities, helping them see a future for themselves at home. Co-op work placements may take place during or after school hours, on weekends, and during vacations.
