McGuinty Government Recognizes Employers Supporting Student Jobs, Future Careers
March 22, 2012
The London Police Service is being recognized for helping students gain hands-on learning opportunities for their future careers.
The London Police Service received an Employer Champion Award for providing high school students with valuable work experience, career talks and classroom visits for more than 25 years. Students have also been provided with co-op placements where they regularly work in units such as freedom of information, forensic identification, criminal investigation, court services and more.
Building more opportunities for students to gain the skills and experience they need for the jobs of tomorrow is part of the McGuinty government's plan to support student success while securing a brighter future for all Ontarians.
“Meaningful learning opportunities, like those provided by the London Police Service, help students gain valuable experience, which will help them reach their future career aspirations. By getting this experience today, our students will be better prepared for the jobs of tomorrow.”
“I'm delighted that our high school kids are developing these positives relationships with our police officers and getting such terrific hands-on experience. This will provide great benefits to our community now and in the future.”
“The London Police Service has a proud history of providing meaningful opportunities for youth to engage with police officers in a positive, productive manner. Investing in youth through co-op and other experiential learning programs has greatly benefited our organization and the community at large.”
