Cooperative Vocational Education (CVE)

Learn a Trade - Launch Your Future

The Cooperative Vocational Education Program is an excellent way to explore a career, not just a job. Twelve trades are offered, each one linked to Post Secondary Education, and Nationally and Provincially recognized. You can complete grade 12 and get the first year of your trade certification all in the same year!

CVE's unique feature is the extended work placement portion of the program. You actually work in the field in your chosen trade for six to seven months, doing the actual job and making valuable contacts in the industry. You can put "Experience" on your resume!

For additional information:

  • contact your school's guidance councilor
  • email us at ALC@7oaks.org
