Co-Op funding for NIC and VIU

North Island College and Vancouver Island University are receiving funding to support co-op programs.

The funding was provided by the province to mark National Co-op Week.

NIC Coordinator for Work Integrated Education, Anita Budisa-Bonneau, says one of the focuses will be outreach into the business community to try and create more co-op opportunities for students.

She says co-ops provide invaluable experiences for students. She notes it provides a great forum to use the skills they’ve been taught in the classroom.
