High School Co-op Work Experience
Cooperative Education is a work based learning opportunity that links classroom instruction in Technology Education, Marketing Education, Family and Consumer Education, and Business and Information Technology Education with “real world” work experience in related occupations. The Co-op program provides on the job training and evaluation through carefully planned and supervised experiences that develop, improve, and/or refine occupational competencies required for a given career objective. These competencies include attitudes, skills, and knowledge.
The co-op program through INSPIRE Sheboygan County is open to Sheboygan County students ages 16-18 who are looking to explore a variety of career fields including manufacturing, engineering, automotive, healthcare, and small business entrepreneurship. The co-op experience is a minimum of 75 hours within an academic quarter. Students apply and interview for positions they are interested in and are paid an hourly wage based on industry standards. They also receive ½ credit upon successful completion of the co-op. The co-op is pass/fail. Students must also be enrolled in a related course.
