Cadet COOP Registration Information 


Who is eligible for this program?

Any current air, army or sea cadet who already has achieved at least one high school credit and is 

a  student  in  Ontario.  This student  does  not  have  to  be  from  UCDSB.  Currently,  we  are 

only  enrolling students within the boundaries of UCDSB.

What if my child does not attend UCDSB?

No problem. They are still eligible, however, they should speak to their guidance counsellor to let 

them know that they are participating in this program. If your child’s school is not supportive, 

please let us know. Sometimes they just are not aware of the opportunities that cadets offers.

What work will my child have to complete?

On top of completing their yearly training with their cadet unit, they will be required to complete 

the pre-placement assignments, a monthly journal entry, a time log sheet and a final project (A 

static display at their Annual Ceremonial Review)

How many hours will be required?

A total of ninety (90) hours of cadet training time is required in order to achieve one credit.

How will my child be evaluated?

Your child will be evaluated based on the thoroughness and completeness of the pre-placement work,  

their  monthly  journal  entries,  log  sheet  completion  and  final  project.  The  evaluation  

will  be completed by a co-op teacher from UCDSB.

How will my cadet’s unit be involved?

There will be minimal involvement required from the CO or Trg O of your child’s unit. Other than 

letting   the   teacher   assigned   to   the   unit   know   that   the   cadet   has   

successfully   completed   their level/phase/star training, there is no other involvement. 

Evaluation and reporting is completed by the teachers. The cadet training program is delivered by 

the cadet’s unit, not the teachers.

Can hours from last year’s training year be counted?

No, we will only be counting hours obtained from the current training year.

What if my child requires a leave of absence from cadet training?

Please ensure you contact the co-op teacher assigned to your child and we will work with you to 

develop a plan.

Where will work be submitted?

Work can be submitted by emailing it to the co-op teacher, or handing the work to the co-op teacher 

during a visit.

How many visits will the teacher be making?

The co-op teacher will make a minimum of 4 visits to your child at their training location. One of 

these  visits  will  be  an  initial  interview  with  the  cadet.  Another  may  be  to  attend  

the  unit’s  Annual Ceremonial Review to view the static display the cadets are to create as part 

of their final project.

How many credits can my child achieve?

Up to two credits may be granted per training year to a cadet.

What is a PPLP?

PPLP  stands  for  personalized  placement  learning  plan.  This  is  a  form  of  agreement  that 

 tells students which curriculum expectations they will be evaluated and assessed on in order to 

achieve the credit. This will be developed by the teacher.

What credit will be granted?

All co-op credits are linked to a credit your child has already achieved through their school. 

Co-op does not appear as a credit by itself on a student’s transcript, but rather is displayed as 

co-op beside a course code of another credit. For this program, most student’s will have their 

credit linked to civics (CHV 2O) [Other options may be available].  Co-op does not replace a credit 

your child will need to obtain, but rather is a further exploration of that credit.  This credit 

DOES count towards the thirty (30) credits that a student is required to achieve in order to 

receive their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

Will this credit count towards one of the mandatory 18 credits?

Yes, however, only a few co-op credits may count towards the 18 credits. Please ensure you and your 

child are in communication with your school’s guidance counsellor to ensure your child is on track 

for graduation.

What if my child is in a Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) program?

Not  a  problem.  Please  ensure  you  let  us  know  at  the  beginning  of  the  program  as  

co-op  is  a requirement for SHSM. We will try to ensure this co-op fits the SHSM requirement.
