Cooperative Education

Cooperative Education is a half day, supervised, work-based experience in a student’s chosen occupational area and assists in the transition from school to the workplace. The Co-op Program is reserved for those individuals recommended by their instructors to be the most likely to succeed on the job. Students selected for Co-op are representing the school and establishing reputations and records which will follow them beyond graduation. Only students who meet a series of demanding requirements and demonstrate a conscientious work ethic and proficiency in their vocational area will be accepted into the Co-op program, as they will be representing BAVTS, their vocational instructors and themselves in the workplace.
