Co-operative work experience (Co-op) - employers

The Co-op program is based upon DVC's value of work and experience as a learning opportunity. As an employer participating in the program your responsibilities are straight forward and possibly already a part of your relationship with your employee. Below are the three key responsibilities to assist your employee in being successful in their class.

1 - Assist them by checking over their objectives to ensure that they are practical and attainable.
2 - Supervise the student in their work to verify that they are working toward accomplishing their objectives.
3 - Meet with their instructor, on your schedule and at your place of business, to report on how the student accomplished their objectives, and to verify their hours worked.

If you have additional questions about the Co-op program, please do not hesitate to contact us: 925-685-1230 x2435.
