Cooperative Education and Placement
Cooperative education program gives qualified senior students an opportunity for paid work experience at a company in the trade for which they have been trained. Students go to co-op in place of their shop week classes. They are under the continuous supervision of their teachers, co-op coordinator and their employer.
To qualify, students must have passing academic grades, “C” or better in their vocational program, good attendance and recommendations from all instructors. Cooperative Education can help students acquire marketable skills, become aware of career goals, learn to work with others, gain on-the-job experience, and earn money.
Employers may hire trained students after graduation. This opportunity is also available to qualified juniors beginning in the second semester of their junior year.
