What is Cooperative Education?

Cooperative Education is an excellent opportunity for all senior students in high school to combine classroom learning with practical experience in the workplace. The classroom extends into the community where the teacher and employer work together to provide hands-on learning activities that are related to the student’s subject area. Students can earn two or more diploma credits in the academic, business and technology areas.

Students heading for college or university may choose to participate to gain field experience to enhance their success in post secondary studies. All applicants must be at least 16 years of age and enrolled in senior division courses.
