Cooperative education is a structured method of combining classroom-based education
with practical work experience. A cooperative education experience, commonly known as a "co-
op", provides academic credit for structured job experience. Cooperative education is taking on
new importance in helping young people to make the school-to-work transition. Cooperative
learning falls under the umbrella of work-integrated learning (alongside internships, service
learning and clinical placements) but is distinct as it alternates a school term with a work term in a
structured manner, involves a partnership between the academic institution and the employer, and
generally is both paid and intended to advance the education of the student
