At Corpus Christi, the Co-op program is an opportunity for students to integrate academic study with practical experience in various career fields.

Our Co-op program gives students the opportunity to “preview a career”. Students will have an opportunity to discover the variety of options available to them in the world of work, enhance their post-secondary application, develop employability skills, leadership skills and entrepreneurial attitude and explore personal interests, abilities and values.

What is Co-operative Education?

Cooperative Education is a planned learning experience, for which credits are earned, that integrates classroom theory and learning experiences at a workplace to enable students to apply and refine the knowledge and skills acquired in a related course. Students are generally out in a workplace for a half day (morning or afternoon) for a whole semester (The first semester is from September to January and the second semester is from February to June). The tasks that are performed at the work site relate to a course that is either being taken presently or in a previous semester. Students will participate in a pre-placement orientation where they will discuss resume writing, interview skills, health and safety before they are able to go to a work site. Students will meet on a monthly basis with the co-op teacher in a group session to reflect on what they are learning at the work site.

Why Take Co-operative Education?

  • To learn how to write a resume, prepare for an interview, etc.
  • To receive on-the-job training in a related subject area
  • To expand on the skills studied at school in a practical way and use equipment that might not be available in a secondary school
  • To develop the attitude and skills necessary to work successfully
  • To identify capabilities, limitations, strengths and future career direction
  • To become more aware of the demands and responsibilities of employment
  • To participate in an alternative method of earning credits
  • To earn hours toward an apprenticeship

Who Can Apply and How?

Students can take co-op in Grade 11 or 12 and may take it more than once!

  • Select Co-op on the Option Sheet.  The course code is NGC 30 for Grade 11 and NGC 40 for Grade 12
  • Complete an application form, available from the Co-op Office or Guidance Office, and return it to one of the Co-op teachers
  • Wait to be contacted for an interview with a Co-op teacher. A co-op teacher will interview the student to discuss the program and determine a suitable placement that meets the student’s academic and career goals.

Welcome to the Student Services Department at Corpus Christi

Our staff work with your teen to provide academic and career counselling. Students are constantly transitioning during their secondary school experience: from elementary to secondary, from semester to semester, from intermediate to senior level, from secondary to post-secondary. These transitions require planning, research and the expertise of the Guidance Counsellor. Sometimes students experience situations that require the assistance of the Student Success teacher or the Credit Recovery teacher. Those students who are dealing with non-academic concerns can access the services of the Social worker. Co-op teachers oversee students who have chosen to earn credits via a work placement in the community.

Guidance Counsellors see students by alpha via surname:

A-F: Ms. Kelenc

G-M: Mrs. Clarke

N-Z: Mr. Papa

If you have any concerns about your teen, please contact your child’s Guidance Counsellor. The Department posts important information regularly; this includes information about university, college, apprenticeships, scholarships, night school, summer school, e-learning etc. Please check our site and Important Information on the school website.
