Cooperative Education

Through the Co-operative Education Program (Co-op), employers are able to select students best suited to fill their needs before those students graduate. Co-op students are hired on a temporary basis and trained on the job for a predetermined period of time. There are two work blocks: A) January-June and B) July-December. Hiring a Co-op student is very cost effective because companies are not required to offer Co-op students employee benefits nor are they eligible for unemployment compensation at the conclusion of their work block. Unlike other temporary hiring arrangements, businesses never pay any fees or service charges associated with our program. A student may participate in the Co-op program for up to four (4) work blocks (two year equivalent) as long as they are progressively learning on the job and satisfied employers can either hire these students (after graduation) as permanent employees at a fraction of the traditional recruitment cost or opt to select another Co-op student.
