And A Special Thanks To Our Co-op Employers

"We couldn't do it without them," says Coop Teacher Anita Vrh.
Vrh is a member of the Western Tech Coop Department and she has placed hundreds of students in work environments over many many years. Coop work placement allows Western Students to earn high school credits while gaining practical experience in the working world. Vrh's job is to match the right student with the right employer and ensure that the relationship is positive for both parties.
"We have incredible commitment from the business community. They really support us and they trust us. It's a great act of faith for a small business owner to take on a student trainee and allow them into a business that they've spent a lifetime developing. We've got to make sure that the students that we provide are exceptional and appreciate the value of the experience that we're providing."

Western Tech is still looking for employers to accept students into their businesses. If you know of a business that could provide valuable work experience for a WTCS student, please call the Coop offices at 416 393-0500.

Below is a list of the special employers that have already allowed Western Tech students into their businesses and work environments. We'd like to offer a very special thanks to our sponsors!
