A Co-operative Education Program (Co-op) is one that formally integrates a student's academic studies with work experience.
How does Co-op work?
The usual plan is for the student to alternate periods of experience in career-related fields according to the following criteria:
Each work situation is approved by the Co-operative Education institution as a suitable learning situation
The Co-operative Education student is engaged in productive work rather than merely observing
The Co-operative Education student receives remuneration for the work performed
The Co-operative Education student's progress on the job is monitored by the Co-operative Education institution
The Co-operative Education student's performance on the job is supervised and evaluated by the student's employer
- The time spent in periods of work experience must be at least thirty percent of the time spent in academic study
