COOPERATIVE EDUCATION: Are you interested in earning a paycheck while earning grades? Cooperative Education adds a paid career-based learning component to the student's training program. Participation in Cooperative Education allows the employer and A.W. Beattie Career Center to work together to meet the training needs of eligible students. Seniors in their second or third year at A.W. Beattie Career Center are eligible for Cooperative Education and attend A.W. Beattie Career Center one or two days a week and report to their job sites for the rest of the week.
