    DSBN Cooperative Education and the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program

    Experiential Learning programs are planned learning experiences that take place in the community. They can help students make post secondary pathway and career decisions by helping them make connections between their classroom learning and the workplace.

    A Cooperative Education (co-op) program lets students try out career options and gain experience in a workplace setting while earning credits towards their OSSD. The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) is a component of co-op, that allows students to complete a placement in an apprenticeship trade. Eligible students may also have the opportunity to become registered apprentices while still in high school.
