Co-op programs combine academic studies with related work experiences.
Queen Elizabeth Secondary School is known District-wide for the integrity and variety of our co-op programs. In 2022-2023, we are offering Full-Day and Half-Day programs.
Full- Day Programs:
(All day for 1 semester - 24 credits)
Each co-op consists of 2-3 core subjects and two work experiences, as well as support and credit for the completion of Career Life Connections and Capstone Project. In the semester of your co-op, you have the same teacher, classmates and classroom for all courses. Students will also complete TWO different work experience placements; therefore, you should expect some acceleration of in-class material in order to allow for this component of the program.
Half-Day CLC Focused Study Programs:
(1/2 day for 1 semester - 12 credits)
-Robotics Engineering 11/12
These co-ops will run two blocks of classroom instruction in the morning. You will receive 12 credits and meet the requirements for Career Life Connections and Capstone Project. Students will complete ONE work experience placement in the afternoon when the blocks flip to the afternoon rotation.
If you are unsure or have any questions, please contact the Career Centre where we will be glad to help you with your academic and/or career decisions.

It's the quintessential win-win situation. You gain skills and experience to build your resume, while the community benefits from your involvement and commitment. Volunteering strengthens communities; it's your chance to support community resources that you are interested in or that benefit people you care about.
Need more reasons to volunteer? You need to accumulate a minimum of 30 hours of volunteer or work experience in order to satisfy part of your graduation requirements. If you're thinking about applying for scholarships, community service is often something that scholarship committees look for when selecting award recipients. The "depth" of your community involvement may be considered too, so the sooner you start volunteering, the better.
