Summer Co-operative Education
|UPDATE: April 1st, 2020 ~ Given the recent announcement of the extended school closure to students until May 4th, 2020, the Summer Co-op Application process is currently on hold. Please check back for updates.|
The Summer Co-operative Education Program allows students to earn two (2) credits by integrating course curriculum with learning at a work placement during the five-week program. Students are monitored and supported in their learning by the placement assistant administrator and co-op teachers. Students must be available to commit to the entirety of the program. There are no accommodations for vacation or other summer plans.
- gain workplace experience in a unique learning environment outside the classroom
- develop employability skills and work habits that are applicable to the workplace
- participate in hands-on learning in a safe and encouraging environment
- choose a work placement based on their interests, readiness and needs
- connect and build relationships with potential future employers
Summer Co-op is available to current Peel District School Board day school students only.
Acceptance into the Summer Co-op program will be based on the following priorities:
- Students who will have earned a minimum of 20 credits by June.
- Studentes who require their final 2 credits to graduate.
- Students who are recommended by their Guidance Counsellors as requiring an alternative learning experience in working towards their OSSD.
