High School (Co-Op) Placements

St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton (SJHH) is committed to excellence in teaching and learning and as such provides a variety of placement opportunities for High School Co-operative Education students throughout the calendar year.

The Volunteer Resources Department, Charlton Campus, is responsible for coordinating and managing the High School Co-operative Education program on behalf of St. Joseph’s Hamilton Healthcare.

St. Joseph’s Hamilton Healthcare participates in the Central Placement Process where all placements are coordinated through one central Board representative.  As a result, all requests from Hamilton Wentworth District School Board and Hamilton Wentworth Catholic District School Board students and teachers for Co-op Education placements must be referred to the appropriate Board Representative.  Individual placements cannot be arranged directly by the student or teacher.

Co-op placements are available for the fall, winter and summer terms. Students must obtain and submit a High School Co-Operative Education Program Student Application Form to their Co-Operative Education teacher at their school prior to the deadline.  Applications are coordinated through the school board representative.

We interview potential students and confirmations are sent to the school board. Upon acceptance into the program, from the school board, complete all pre-requisite requirements prior to starting the placement.

What are the Pre-Placement Requirements?

  • Please connect with your high school Cooperative Education teacher or guidance counselor to find out details on requirements and timelines.
