Co-op Students

The Cooperative Education Program is designed to assist High School students with on-site workplace training. The components of cooperative education include classroom, placement, assessment and evaluation.

Students learn important lessons and make valuable contacts. Co-op students are provided with positions on a semester basis in agreement with our local school boards and forms part of the Grade 11 or 12 curriculum courses.
