Cooperative education allows students to earn secondary school credits towards their OSSD by combining in-school studies with related work experiences. The Cooperative Education course includes pre-placement, integration and placement components. The Ontario Ministry of Education Policy document for Cooperative Education and Other Forms of Experiential Learning, provides an overview of required hours for each of these components.
Students must complete all their hours and remain at their placements until the date stipulated. The completion date of Cooperative Education credits coincides with the completion date of other school courses.
Cooperative education will be available to students from Grades 11-12.
