Type of Work Placements

Work assignments vary from unstructured situations where students work toward objectives and deadlines, to positions with tasks and procedures that are well defined. Academic Staff Members in Co-operative Education can advise in structuring work terms and job descriptions to meet both student and employer needs. Such assignments could include working in the areas of radio, television, media, film, festival planning, script assistance, entertainment and educational institutions. Employers are encouraged to challenge students to optimize both learning opportunities and employer benefits.
