Community Integration through Co-operative Education (CICE) - 284
Hear what our CICE students have to say
The CICE program will provide individuals with intellectual disabilities and other significant learning challenges the opportunity to experience college life, pursue a postsecondary education and develop skills which will help prepare them for employment. Students will attend common core mandatory CICE courses with their peers from the CICE program and will also have the opportunity to attend an academic experience class in an area of their interest. Students will have the support of a Learning Facilitator who may attend classes, provide follow-up study skills and test preparation.

Program of Studies
Course Overview & Descriptions
Program Learning Outcomes, often referred to as ‘Program Standards', set out the essential learning that a student must achieve before being deemed ready to graduate.
- Review the program learning outcomes for Community Integration through Co-operative Education (CICE) (284)
In many cases these program learning outcomes were developed by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU) in consultation with employers and educators who are experts in the program field. To ensure the outcomes remain current and in line with industry needs, we invite our employers, graduates working in the field and current students to re-examine and update them during regular, ongoing program review focus groups.
