  1. Each work term is developed in partnership with the employer and approved by the co-operative education program as a suitable learning environment;
  2. The student is engaged in productive work for which the student receives remuneration;
  3. The co-op curriculum supports student learning goals, personal evaluation and reflection;

  5. The student's progress during their work term is monitored by the co-operative education program;
