Course Description

Cooperative education is a credit course in which students learn through workplace and classroom experiences. In co-op, students relate what they have learned in a school subject by applying it in the workplace. For example, students can apply what they have learned in science class while working in a veterinary clinic. Co-op helps them “try out” an occupation to make sure it is really what they want to do after high school.

Co-op is beneficial for students who plan to enter university, college, apprenticeships and the workplace after high school. Students develop their skills, interests and professional connections while still in high school, in almost any industry. Students can also take cooperative education courses more than once, and up to two cooperative education courses can count towards a student’s compulsory credits.

Students can also participate in a number of central programs, working in occupations in healthcare, hospitality, uniformed services, banking and finance, or drama. Students can also participate in the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program through their cooperative education courses.
