Towards Making New Grads Workforce-Ready: UWaterloo’s co-op model for closing
the employment-readiness gap
9:00-11:00am. The business community, key government officials, the leadership of academic institutions, and parents of future graduates are invited to attend this seminar on:
" Meeting the challenge of preparing graduates to enter the workforce with high employability readiness – UWaterloo's co-op model " The required support structure for providing a quality platform for co-op opportunities " Economic and other positive impacts of co-op on the local area and beyond " Realizing proven merits of workforce-ready grads within the local workforce
At the end of the day, if this 'terraforming of the educational landscape' is to be realized in any geographic area, parents will need to play a supportive role. Knowing the context from an ideological and philosophical standpoint, and seeing the evidence of outcomes might help them in the long run.
