Career Integrated Learning (Co-op)
Our Career Integrated Learning (DCO3O) provides senior students with an opportunity to gain work experience in a relevant work placement in Hong Kong. Students would be paired with a company/organization based on post-secondary program interests as stated in the OSSD+ Signature Program. During the semester (February to June) students will attend school in the morning and then be at their cooperative placement in the afternoon.
About our Career Integrated Learning and Students
Our students are well prepared for the workplace
All students have undergone an interview process prior to their acceptance in the Co-op program which ensures they will have the necessary skills to be valuable contributors to any working environment. In addition, students also completed a classroom component prior to joining the workplace that will familiarize them with workplace health and safety, labour laws, and ethics.
Flexible schedule according to your company's needs
Our students will attend their placement for 3 hours daily Monday-Friday. Recommended times are from 1:00-4:00pm or from 1:30-4:30pm, but the time is flexible and can be individually tailored. Students will return to class 5 times throughout the duration of the placement to reflect on their workplace experience.
A well-supported system to ensure a successful partnership
Student placements will be monitored by their teacher to ensure a successful relationship between the employer and student.
