Interdisciplinary Cooperative Education


Interdisciplinary Cooperative Education
The classroom training is part of a cooperative effort on the part of school and the employer to emphasize proper work traits needed by business and industry. Training stations provide the opportunity to further develop occupational competencies under actual working conditions. Vocational training requires a student to receive five hours per week of in-class instruction. Classroom topics include safety, career selection, job applications and resumes, goal setting, self-esteem, consumer knowledge, insurance, taxes, computer skills, communication skills, entrepreneurial skills, money management, legal systems, employments trends and technical training schools and colleges. Guest speakers and field trips are provided to give insight on a variety of career topics. Students are required to complete two semesters. Students earn one credit per semester for this classroom portion of the co-op program. Successful completion of the on-the-job portion of the co-op is worth two credits per semester.
