What are the benefits to my organization?
Do I have to pay the student?
Does the college provide support if I encounter difficulties with a student placement?
The Cooperative Work Experience office provides a coordinator to assist employers and students. An instructor from the student's specific program of study will also advise the student and be available if a problem arises.
Are students covered by Worker's Compensation while at my site?
The employer is responsible to pay Worker's Compensation for all paid employees including those in the CWE program. In non-paid CWE the college will provide worker's compensation insurance for the number of hours the student works at the training site.
Will I be able to interview the student before making a decision?
Yes, we encourage training sites to provide a professional interview for each student they are considering. This allows the training site to determine if the student will fit within the organization before a commitment is made and it also allows the student to gain experience by going through the formal interview process.
