MTEL has been designed and developed by cooperative education teachers from Ontario:
-to draw on their experience
-to help teachers manage their cooperative education and OYAP programs efficiently
-to ensure that students are actively involved in all essential processes for learning.

Student information is preloaded into the database and ready to use at the beginning of the cooperative education experience.

A searchable record of all past placement employers or supervisors helps match students with a community partner.

Once a community connection has been established, MTEL will help the student develop his or her learning plan with the collaboration and support of the cooperative education teacher and the placement supervisor thus ensuring an ongoing dynamic process.

Collaborate and Supportthe Student in the Development of his or her Learning Plan

  • Cooperative Education curriculum – including overall and specific expectations
  • Ontario Curriculum – including overall and specific expectations
  • National Occupation Classification (NOC) – includes codes, titles, definitions, and duties
  • Apprenticeship Training Standard and Schedule of Training – the complete versions of the training standards for most apprenticeship trades are available which include codes, titles, skills or skill sets. Short versions of certain training standards are also available.

Dynamic process: the development of the learning plan is an ongoing process and requires an active participation by the student, with collaboration and support of the cooperative education teacher and the placement supervisor.
