Expressions of Interest to Review and Update the Accreditation Standards, Guidelines and Manual

CEWIL Canada is seeking Expressions of Interest from parties or individuals that are both qualified and available to complete the Accreditation standards, guidelines and manual review and update project deliverables as listed below. This is a paid opportunity.

Co-operative education accreditation standards are reviewed periodically to ensure it is in line with research and wise practices. The last accreditation review was completed in 2016. In the current co-operative education landscape there is an increased need for the consideration of equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility practices in current standards and rationale.  In 2022, the current accreditation guidelines were reviewed by an external EDIA consultant with a key recommendation to transition the application process to a more learner-centered approach to accreditation.

The Accreditation Council intends to implement the recommendations of the EDIA consultant and create a more accessible path to accreditation for co-operative education programs and more importantly, the students, employers and communities that we serve.

Please review the full expression of interest linked below for more information. The deadline to submit is March 10, 2023 by midnight ET.
