Excellent Experiences in Cooperative Education at Roberta Place

Roberta Place Long-Term Care in Barrie was honoured with the Provincial Partnership Council 2014 Employer Champions Award on behalf of the Ontario Ministry of Education and the OCEA (Ontario Cooperative Education Association) on Tuesday, April 29, 2014.

The Professional Partnership Council (PPC) is a volunteer advisory committee comprised of leaders form the private, public and voluntary sectors. Their mission is to ensure that every Ontario student has the opportunity to participate in relevant experiences that support their academic achievement, career development and future success. By acknowledging the cooperative education at Roberta Place, we are happy to share in that same mission and provide a professional experience to students that are thinking about careers in long-term care.

Roberta Place worked with the students from Bear Creek Secondary Secondary School, who then nominated the home for this great award. Thank you to the Co-op Team at Bear Creek for the nomination - M. Newbigging, T. Smith, J. Miller and S. Rawding.

“We are proud to offer students a wide range of co-operative education learning opportunities and firsthand contact with career professionals. Youth also have the opportunity to interact with the elderly. And residents of the facility can interact with young people, in both cases enriching their lives.” —   Sheila MacDonald, Coordinator of Volunteer Services, Roberta Place Long Term Care Home

Roberta Place will be holding a special awards presentation on Monday May 5th to present the staff members that helped out with the program, a personalized certificate and perhaps some cake! Come by and meet the team instrumental in mentoring the students: Anita Crane, Kristina Frappier, Tiffany Gardhouse, Jessica Watson, Andrea Wooff and Stacy Zelazny.
