> What is involved in
undertake a semestered co-operative education program. They divide their
time between school and the workplace, spending at least half the day
with the employer. School credits are awarded for successful on-the-job
experience after a joint evaluation by the employer and the teacher.
For all co-op courses, the students spend the first 3 weeks in class for
the 'preparation for work' unit. After the first 3 weeks, the students
will spend Mondays in school for standard co-op classes. Students would
also attend any scheduled regular classes every day.
Students are expected to attend their workplace placement every scheduled
day, or to undertake the proper notification process if an absent day
is required. Punctuality counts towards your employer's evaluation and
conseqently your final term mark. If a student is found to be missing
too many work days or is late often, they will be given a warning and
after that may be removed from the program.
