Summer Cooperative Education

The Summer Cooperative Education program provides current Thames Valley District School Board secondary school students with a valuable learning experience that demonstrates the relevance of school, the community, and skill development as a necessary transition to the workplace. Students will have the opportunity to earn two credits towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

For Summer 2020, we are offering the Cooperative Education Program as an online program using the Brightspace platform. Students will connect with community partners as part of the virtual learning experience but will not be participating in the usual on-site work placements. These measures are in place to protect the health and safety of all participants, as directed by the Ministry of Education.

Brightspace is a ministry funded and provincially supported cloud-based learning management system in which students can access classroom learning activities, submit work for assessment and receive feedback. As part of this virtual learning experience, the online coop program will include involvement from community partners as Virtual Coop Mentors and Guest Speakers. Coop students will have the opportunity to explore information specifically related to their career choices and SHSM areas of focus.

For students who have already submitted a Summer Coop Application: Please do not submit another application. The summer school office will be contacting you directly by email with further instructions.

For students who have not yet submitted an Application: The application form for the Online Summer Coop program will be available from May 15 to May 22, 2020.
