Not sure what the difference is between a co-op placement and an internship? Do you know how your company can hire a student for an apprenticeship or service learning placement?
A new set of written and multimedia resources from Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada can help. Created in partnership with Magnet, these in-depth and engaging resources explain the nine forms of work-integrated learning opportunities recognized by CEWIL, and detail the process and requirements employers can expect with each.
By clarifying expectations, articulating deliverables, framing the timelines for each opportunity, and providing examples and best practices, these materials can help employers better understand the ways they can engage and work with university and college students.
“Work-integrated learning programs are a great way for companies to explore new ideas, access short-term support for day-to-day tasks, and connect with early talent,” said Mark Patterson, Magnet’s Executive Director. “Small and medium-sized businesses, however, may not have the resources to develop a comprehensive work-integrated learning program or research the many placement types available. We partnered with CEWIL to create this collection of resources to help those employers better understand the benefits and characteristics of each type of work-integrated learning, and get a clearer idea of which work best for them.”
