Co-Operative Education Program
The Co-Operative Education program has two intakes a year, September and January.
Our next intake-registration will take place during the week of January 23rd, 2017
The Co-operative Education program is a non-paid volunteer program that helps students to gain valuable work experience and earn credits at the same time. Co-op students gain on-the-job experience and strengthen skills required by employers. This experience, plus the references and contacts developed, will be very useful when looking for employment.
Co-op is a four to six credit package. Each student’s co-op experience will be tailored to meet his/her needs and skills. Possible work placements and positions include office assistant, customer service, accountant/bookkeeper, marketing, teaching, social work, web design, computer programing and networking, mechanical, chemical, electrical, civil and architectural engineering positions and many more.
Currently enrolled students who are interested in Co-op should visit the Coop Office in Room 229.
To apply for all Co-operative Education programs, new students must complete an assessment at Yorkdale to determine whether they are ready for a work placement.
