Cooperative Work Experience Education (CWEE) combines on-the-job experience with regular classroom instruction. It is designed to expand students’ skills and knowledge, and to improve self-understanding by integrating classroom study with supervised work experience. 

CWEE is based on the principle that well-educated individuals develop most effectively through the incorporation of related education and work experience. By monitoring structured work experiences in business, industry, government and human services settings, LATTC provides enrichment to college studies which enhance the student’s total development.

In the Cooperative Work Experience Education program, individual student educational objectives are carefully planned and coordinated between the College, student, and employer to ensure a positive and realistic employment experience.

  • To provide opportunity for the student to secure employment on a parttime or full-time basis.
