What is Co-op?

  • Coop is a course available to grade 11 & 12 students that integrates classroom learning with practical experience in a workplace.

  • Students spend half (2 credit) or full day (4 credits) at a workplace within an industry of their choice.

Placement Opportunities

  • Coop teachers, in consultation with the students, select and organize placements according to the students’ strengths and interests.

  • Students must be interviewed by the placement supervisor to be accepted for the placement (formality of interview varies depending on employer).

Why Take Co-op?

  • It’s never too early to start thinking about what you might want to do as a future career. Co-op is a great opportunity to try something out before you spend money on college and/or university to find out you don’t like it.

  • It provides you with “real” experiences for learning, you’re able to make connections within the workplace, and it’s work experience to add to your resume.

Options for Co-op include, but are not limited to...

  • administration, animal care, automotive, broadcasting/video production, early childhood education, computer science, dental, esthetics, fashion, graphic design, law/policing, medical/pharmacy, restaurants, retail, seniors care,  teachers, and trades!
