Coop/OYAP Education - where we really put students to work!
Co-op/OYAP(Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program) is an experiential learning program that can assist all students at TTSC who are bound for either the workplace, apprenticeship or college. This unique opportunity gives our students a chance to explore the world beyond school while earning diploma credits.
It’s a great opportunity to explore career paths while developing new skills as well as making valuable connections within the working community. Students are mainly assessed and evaluated on their demonstration of tasks at the workplace.
Co-op/OYAP students are able to select their placements from the wide variety of job opportunities that are available in the world of work. Some restrictions will apply when issues related to workplace safety are in question. Students are encouraged to search for and secure a work placement of their choice. Teachers will support students needing assistance in searching for and securing a placement.
There is no restriction on the total number of cooperative education credits that students may earn in secondary school as long as they complete the compulsory course requirements. We encourage all our students to include the Co-op/OYAP Program as an integral part of their high school learning experience at TTSC.
