The new Cooperative Education document includes both curriculum and policy related to the implementation of cooperative education. It will replace Cooperative Education and Other Forms of Experiential Learning: Policies and Procedures for Ontario Secondary Schools, 2000. Schools offering cooperative education are required to implement this curriculum policy document beginning September 2018. Course descriptions and codes, and other information about cooperative education courses were provided in a memo from Student Achievement Division in December 2017.
We are also pleased to support school boards and authorities in implementing Cooperative Education through regional implementation sessions. These sessions began in April and will continue through May, 2018. Information about these regional sessions was provided in a separate memo in February 2018.
