Work-Integrated Learning for Environmental Students
Connect Your Students with Employment
Competition to find a good job upon graduation is strong. It may not be enough for your students to have graduated from a degree or diploma with top marks because employers want more than education and credentials.
They also want new hires to have a good mix of technical and soft skills that have been acquired through on-the-job experience.
Student Work Placement Program
Thanks to the support of our funders – Employment and Social Development Canada – your students can advance their career more quickly while still in school.
The Student Work Placement Program offers Canadian employers paid work placements, that are funded by the government, and provide post-secondary students the opportunity to work in a meaningful role that applies the learnings from their program. This is a great addition to your course curriculum, whether your faculty has a formal co-op program or not.
Work-Integrated Learning Benefits:
By helping employers with wage and training costs, we can minimize the risk to take on junior candidates and reduce the number of under or unemployed recent graduates.
