Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education credits at Bishop Reding are a unique learning opportunity that takes our students out of the formal classroom learning environment and into the real world of work. The opportunity to experience the workplace in any subject area helps our Bishop Reding students explore the career options available in the Halton community and gather much needed valuable information to make informed decisions about career choices and all post-secondary destinations. Placements include all subjects and all levels and focuses on gaining real world work experience.

Cooperative Education programs combine a full-semester, half-day work placement in the community with a school-based classroom component to earn 2 co-op credits. Up to a maximum of 3 co-op credits can now be used as part of the 18 compulsory credits required by students to earn their diploma. Make an appointment to see your Guidance Counselor if you are interested in participating in a Cooperative Education experience.
