Cooperative education integrates a student’s academic study with on-the-job work experience. It allows students to obtain professional experience in their specific field of study. This is done by alternating periods of on-campus study with work experience in business, industry, and government. Co-op helps bridge the gap between the classroom and work.
Co-op work terms are generally four months in duration. The majority are in Ontario, but they could be anywhere in Canada where a suitable job is available.
Apprenticeship is a hands-on training program for people who want to work in a skilled trade and who enjoy learning by doing. Apprentices are workers, so they earn as they learn. About 90% of apprenticeship training is provided in the workplace by employers. The remainder involves classroom instruction on theory.
The College offers the in-school portion for a variety of apprenticeship programs sponsored by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.
The Dual Credit program is a School/College/Work Initiative (SCWI) that is offered by Cambrian College in partnership with the Rainbow District School Board and the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. The Dual Credit program is intended to encourage secondary school students to complete their secondary school education and to consider continuing on to postsecondary education; the program provides opportunities to explore career prospects; and it ensures a successful transition to College and apprenticeship programs.
