Evergreen Valley College's unique Cooperative Education Work Experience Program pairs employers and educators with students to help them acquire the skills necessary for a successful career in today's business environment. The wide participation of local business, industry, and community organizations is reflected in its success.

In Co-Op Ed. Work Experience classes, students gain experience with the latest techniques, procedures, and equipment used in community agencies and businesses, making class work more functional and relevant. In addition to receiving credit towards their certificate or degree, students often experience increased on-the-job visibility, earn additional responsibilities and gain new opportunities. Students are assisted by the Co-Op Ed. Work Experience Coordinator who monitors progress and helps bridge the gap between these learning opportunities and the realities of work.​

Co-Op Ed. Work Experience is open to students in all majors. To be eligible, students must be employed in a paid or volunteer position and, under the guidance of a participating first line supervisor, assume new or expanded job duties. 

At the beginning of each semester, students develop Learning Objectives for new learning experiences with coaching from the Co-Op Ed. Work Experience Coordinator. The coordinator works with both the student and employer during the semester to monitor progress and assist as needed. At the end of the semester the immediate supervisor evaluates the student's performance regarding the Learning objectives and submits a performance appraisal review to the college. This review, in addition to student work and the evaluation made by the coordinator determines the final grade.
