Return to the Main Page


The Halton District School Board's Co-operative Education programs combine classroom learning with on-the-job training to enhance the educational experiences of participants.

The program assists high school students bound for university, college, apprenticeship or the workplace in making career decisions and developing essential skills, knowledge and attitudes.

Cooperative Education is a planned learning experience for which students earn credits towards an OSSD. The program integrates classroom theory with learning experiences in the community. Students are able to apply, expand, and refine knowledge and skills acquired through a related curriculum course. Cooperative Education is offered to Grade Eleven and Twelve students in all subject areas.
