Work Experience

work experience

The purpose of Cooperative Work Experience Education (CWEE or WOEX) is to help the student obtain on-the-job training that will make him/her a more efficient and valuable employee, while providing a practical education that supplements and enhances classroom theory. 

CWEE is an instructional program in which students earn college credit for what they learn while working at paid jobs or as volunteers (even if self-employed).  The work location is considered the job learning station or JLS.

Students, with the guidance of the job learning station supervisor and CWEE instructor, set their own Learning Objectives, which they fulfill during the semester.  Learning Objectives define what a student will learn on the job during the semester. "Learning" may involve acquiring new knowledge or skills, or improving what a student already knows or can do.
