As an employer, you should provide:
Meet occupational health regulations and train co-op students in your organization’s health and safety policies, including those related to WHMIS and personal protective equipment, if applicable.
Students are responsible for developing learning objectives, discussing them with you and sending them to their co-ordinator.
Your co-op coordinator will arrange a mutually convenient time to meet with you for approximately 15 minutes and with the student for about 30 minutes, to:
Students on a first work term complete a written report that we share with other co-op students to assist in their career research. We ask you to review the report and release it to the student’s co-op coordinator. A faculty member will evaluate the report and we will make it accessible to other co-op students, unless you deem the report confidential.
We will send you a link to an online evaluation form for each student you hire and ask you to complete the evaluation and share it with your student. Co-op students at Laurier must meet performance expectations. We will review the status of those whose performance is not satisfactory and may remove them from the program.
Students perform best when expectations are clear and they receive regular feedback. We appreciate your efforts to provide an effective learning environment and an opportunity for the student to improve by identifying performance issues, providing additional training if necessary and by explaining where corrective action is required. If you have any concerns, contact the co-op office immediately.
