dc.description.abstract Co-operative Education is an integrated learning model that consists of an academic and Experiential Learning component. The concept of Co-operative Education is based on the application of theory and knowledge obtained in the classroom, and the development of practical skills using current technology and techniques in a real workplace context. Co-operative Education is formally recognised as an educational strategy and academic program that is part of the integrated curriculum. The primary aim of Co-operative Education is to prepare a graduate for a particular vocation or profession and is based on a co-operative partnership between a learning institution, an employer and a student, with specified responsibilities for each stakeholder or partner. Experiential Learning is a component of Co-operative Education and consists of interactions such as a formal training module, vocational learning and career experiences. Experiential Learning plays a crucial role in the development of attitudes such as responsible citizenship and professional ethics. The interdependence of the academic and Experiential Learning component of certain curriculum provide a learning experience adequate to meet the demands specified in learning outcomes of teaching programmes and qualifications. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the fundamental concept of Co-operative Education and to briefly explain and evaluate the current practices at the Central University of Technology, Free State. en_US
