Role of the Supervisor (employer)


The role of the Supervisor is one of mentor and evaluator. The Supervisor welcomes the co-op student to the workplace, assigns work, oversees the orientation, and supervises and evaluates the co-op student's job performance. Supervisors must make themselves available to their co-op students. This does not imply a constant presence, but interactions should be frequent and regular enough to allow the co-op students to complete their tasks efficiently and on schedule.
