Students must treat the work experience as a real job such as showing up on time and taking the appropriate break for lunch. They must treat employers and fellow co-workers with respect and follow directions as provided. Students sign a confidentiality agreement before starting and are made aware of the serious nature of the issue. If the arrangement is not working out, the employer may terminate it at any time.
The Co-op teacher will make arrangements to visit the work location two to three times throughout the semester and ask the employer to evaluate the students work.
