1. The work experience is a required part of Information Systems Technology (ISTD) program in which the student obtains practical skills relevant to the learning objectives of the program.

The Canadian College of Technology and Business work experience programs allow students the opportunity to combine their strong technical and business knowledge, obtain through the academic journey, with practical skills developed through work experience. The work experience component is a scheduled academic activity in which a student is placed with an organization where their level of skills and experience will be valuable to both the placement host and the student. 

2. The requirements for participation in the work experience are as follows:

  • Be in Good Academic Standing, as per the CCTB Academic Standing, Promotion, and Graduation Policy, and have no outstanding tuition fees;
  • Be eligible to work in Canada with the appropriate Canadian residence permit;
  • Submit an up-to-date resume

3. The process by which the student will be placed in a work experience is as follows:

  • Eight (8) weeks before Work Experience: An initial orientation session will be conducted by the Career Services Manager to students;
  • The Career Services Coordinator (or designate) will set up an initial meeting with the student to conduct career counselling and to collect the student’s updated resume;
  • The Career Services Manager will send a list of potential employers to students;
  • The Career Services Manager will assist in setting up a maximum of three (3) interviews between the student and employers;
  • Students who are unsuccessful at obtaining Work Placement after three (3) interviews facilitated by the Career Services Manager must source their own Work Placement;
  • Successful candidates will be offered a Co-operative Work Experience position;
  • A Work-Term Agreement will be signed by both the student and the supervisor and collected by the Career Services Coordinator (or designate).

4. The Canadian College of Technology and Business, the student, and the host organization will enter into a written agreement (the Work-Term Agreement) detailing each party’s responsibilities and the activities the student will undertake during the work experience. A copy of the Work-Term Agreement will be provided to the student before the start date of the work experience.

5. The process by which the student will be evaluated in relation to the work experience component is as follows:

  • The Canadian College of Technology and Business will monitor students’ performance during the work experience by reviewing attendance as well as the quality of work assignments delivered through the Bi-Weekly Attendance Report.
  • The Work Experience supervisor/employer will fill out a comprehensive Work Experience Evaluation form upon completion of the work experience hours.
  • The CCTB Academic Standing, Promotion, and Graduation Policy and CCTB Student Attendance Policy apply in evaluating the student’s Work Experience performance.

6. The student will be provided with at least one written evaluation in relation to the work experience component.

7. The Canadian College of Technology and Business will monitor the student during the work experience by reviewing:

  • each bi-weekly reporting period whether the student is attending the work experience;

Student testimonials

I chose to study digital marketing because I think it’s a great field, and you can use your degree to work in so many areas. I like everything about CCTB, and I learned so many things about SEO and Google Analytics that I use in my co-op program right now.

Luisa Alencar, CCTB student

"One of the barriers for all immigrants and new graduates is to enter the job market. But when I entered this program, CCTB made this very easy for me. I got my first job offer immediately after the program, which was higher than my expectations."

Razieh Mokhtarnameh , CCTB alumna

"I just graduated from CCTB and right now I’m a business analyst at one of the government agencies. I don’t just think CCTB helped me, I think are still helping me now by providing feedback, responses, interview preparation and more."

Samuel Arawu, CCTB alumnus

"I completed my Software Quality Assurance testing through CCTB college. It’s amazing! It’s hands-on training and gives the experience of learning what we do in the work environment, which helped me to gain confidence to enter the new world of IT."

Vinitha-Kaliraj, CCTB alumna

"After taking the courses, I was ready and confident. In one of my interviews, the interviewer was impressed that I had that certificate. The instructors and the support team were so motivating and helpful that all students could catch up with the class."
