Co-Op education allows students to “test drive” out a career that they might be interested in by going to work for part of the school day, or even their full school day. The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) allows a Co_op student to begin to learn a skilled trade while completing the requirements for their high school diploma.
At Renfrew County Catholic District School Board, providing opportunities for our students to explore options about future careers choices is very important to us.
If you are interested in exploring the opportunities of Co-Op education and/or the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program talk to your school Co-Op teachers:
