Welcome to Cooperative Education Specialist.

Cooperative education provides a bridge to the world beyond the classroom. It opens doors to opportunities and experiences that strengthen and enrich classroom learning. The individual nature of placement experience and the flexibility that the program demands of teachers can be challenging. But the program can also provide great possibilities for leadership, personal growth, and wonderful relationships for students and teachers alike.

Cooperative education gives students a way to explore how their aptitudes, attitude, interests, knowledge, and skills can be blended in the best possible way. It can also provide information that is beneficial to their planning beyond high school about career paths they may or may not want to pursue. In your role as an experienced specialist in the subject area, you will be able to enrich, expand, and facilitate the best learning experiences possible for your students.

Course Learning Expectations

In this course you will have the opportunity to:

• understand that preplacement/integration and placement process and activities are integral to the success of a co-op program
• explore ways that cooperative education is often built on collaborative relationships
• create, organize, collect, and use information and activities to make cooperative education meaningful and significant to a wide range of students
• identify ways to link cooperative education and experiential learning to other curriculum and other departments in the school
• learn how to design, structure, implement, and deliver a successful cooperative education program for a wide range of students with varied backgrounds, interests, and issues
• appreciate the reasons for reflective practice in cooperative education

Requirements

Application Requirements

1) OCT Membership showing completion of Part 2.

2) CONFIRMATION OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE FORM

Signed by a Supervisory Official* from your School Board confirming that you have two years (388 days) of teaching experience since becoming a certified teacher, one year (194 days) of which is in the subject area of this course.

*The Ontario College of Teachers defines "Supervisory Official" as the Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of the school board for a teacher employed by a Board of Education. A principal or headmaster is not recognized in this capacity. For a teacher employed by a private school, the "supervisory official" is the Ministry of Education official (Education Officer) appointed to your school. For overseas experience the appropriate Supervisory Official is the person your Principal reports to.

**Please note that a new form is always required for a Part 3 (Specialist) course as experience is course/subject specific.
