Charles P. Allen High School

Co-op Education Course

When considering courses for grade 11 or 12, students should consider an opportunity to explore a career possibility through Co-op Education.  Co-op Education is a Grade 12 high school academic credit where students complete 25 hours of pre-placement course work, concentrating on career research, safety, resume, cover letter writing and interview skills.  Once the in class component of this course is completed, students then transition to a Co-op placement in the community.  Typically, a placement consists of one day per week for 10 weeks for a total of 80 hours. Co-op placements can also be completed on a flexible time schedule based on the student's availability as well as the community host's hours of operation and unique needs. Placement with a community host can occur at virtually any time, depending on the type of career the student is interested in.  It is a great way for students to explore career paths that they are considering following high school.

Interested students should simply check “Co-op 12” in their course selection form. They must also complete a Co-op Application Application by April 1st, 2020.
