Procedure:

  1. Co-op placements are sought through networking and direct contact by school staff, Placement Agency and by students themselves.
  2. When a possible Co-op training site is identified, the School Owner or Co-op Placement Officer contacts the proposed site to assess the commitment of the training place host to enhance student learning.  The School Owner or Co-op Placement Officer explains the school’s expectations with respect to joint evaluation of student performance (SELC Career College Co-op Site Inspection Form).
  3. If the training place host is approved to accept co-op placement students, the host’s name and contact information are entered on the school’s roster of co-op placement sites.Ludmila Vlasova
  4. When a student is ready for a co-op placement, the School Owner or Co-op Placement Officer contacts the training place host to discuss a possible placement and training plan.  The Placement Agency will be arranging the interviews, unless the case is self-placement.
  5. If the student is successful at the interview, it is the Co-op Placement Officer’s responsibility to prepare the Student Co-op Placement Agreement Form and Co-op Placement Agreement and Training Plan form.  Co-op Placement Officer meets with the student to sign these documents.  Copies of the documents are placed in the student’s file and the student is given the original documents to deliver to the training place host.  The Co-op Placement Officer advises the student’s instructor of the placement dates.
  6. The Co-op Placement Officer notes the placement dates and plans a contact schedule which should be done through phone calls to the training place host with a minimum one site visit within the period of the placement.  However, if the student obtains a co-op placement outside of Vancouver, phone calls will be considered an acceptable form of evaluation.
  7. At the end of the co-op placement, the Co-op Placement Officer meets with the training place host to conduct an assessment of the student’s performance throughout the co-op placement (SELC Career College Co-op Placement Host Evaluation form). Conference calls may be considered acceptable as well.  The assessment is designed to include the student’s performance at the work site of the skills learned during completion of the program of study.  The completed assessment is signed by the Co-op Placement Officer and the training place host. A copy of the assessment is given to the training place host. The original assessment is placed in the student’s file.
  8. After completion of the co-op placement the student will complete the SELC Career College Co-op Student Feedback Evaluation form. The form is signed by the student and the Co-op Placement Officer. Original is placed in the students file and the copy is given to the student.
