October 29, 2013

George Brown College has expanded its field and co-operative education to 75% of its programs in 2013, up from 69%, and the college plans to have 100% of eligible programs include a field education component by 2020. Employers say hosting a field-education student increases productivity, brings fresh energy into the workplace and offers them a way to meet and assess potential future employees, says GBC. ““In fact, some of the college’s partners have been so pleased with their field education experience, they’ve taken students from multiple academic divisions.”” GBC News Release
