Co-operative education allows students to participate in valuable learning experiences that help prepare them for the next stage of their lives, whether in apprenticeship training, college, community living, university, or the workplace.

Benefits of Co-operative Education include:

Gain practical work experience in areas that complement your personal strengths, interests, and educational needs
Discover new personal strengths and skills
Actively learn and thrive as a responsible team member in the “real world” in an area chosen by you
Have a co-op teacher facilitate entry into a workplace not usually available to students prior to formal training
Extend your high school experience to include a practical component before choosing your post-secondary destination
Confirm career decisions before starting post-secondary education, including apprenticeships
Build an evidence-based career portfolio to support the application process for work, college, or university
Establish contacts in the workplace for networking opportunities and gain references for future employment
Earn multiple credits towards your high school diploma- two co-op credits can be used to fulfill the OSSD compulsory requirements
Develop the marketable skills necessary for success in the workplace
