Cooperative Work Experience/Internship Frequently Asked Questions
What is Cooperative Work Experience?
Cooperative Work Experience (CWE) courses at Allan Hancock College provide on-the-job learning
related to a student’s educational or occupations goals, and are offered by numerous disciplines.
The purpose of CWE is to help students transition from school to work by providing hands-on
learning experiences. There are two different types of CWE (149 & 302).
What are the differences between the two work experience courses?
CWE 302 General Work Experience, is appropriate for supervised employment extending
classroom-based learning to an on-the-job learning environment
not directly related to
student’s
major.
Maximum of 6 units per semester.
CWE 149 Occupational Work Experience, is appropriate for supervised employment, extending
classroom-based learning to an on-the-job learning environment
relating to the student’s career
and educational goals.
Maximum of 8 units per semester.
Both CWE 302 and 149 work experiences improve the students basic work skills and professional
competencies by creating career awareness, improving work habits and fostering positive workplace
attitudes.
Can a student repeat Work Experience?
Yes, students can take the work experience “class” more than once. Eligibility requirements remain
the same; however, the objectives must be different from one term to the next and represent new
learning or expanded responsibilities. Students may take a combination of work experience classes,
however they may not exceed 16 CWE units total (combined 149 & 302).
Are the units transferable?
It depends. The California State University system does accept up to 8 units of Cooperative Work
Experience credit as elective units. Currently, the UC system does not accept the transfer of Work
Experience units. Private universities and colleges may be contacted individually for their own
policy. Students should consult with an academic counselor for potential unit limitations.
How does
CWE help students?
An internship provides students an opportunity to make informed decisions about their
career and enables them to change career goals prior to graduation if the present career
track doesn’t measure up to their expectations.
In addition to the experience an internship provides students and opportunity to gain
valuable business contacts and references.
Students who complete an internship often do significantly better in both salary and
opportunities after graduation.
Are internships full or part-time?
Internships may be full or part-time. They will be determined specifically by the employer. Typically
internships are part-time.
How long do internships last?
The duration of an internship is determined by the employer, but will generally last the entire duration of the
semester/term.
Are internships paid or unpaid?
Internships can be either paid or unpaid.
How many units are CWE classes
worth?
Students may enroll in 1 - 6 units of (CWE-302). Unit enrollment directly correlates to the amount of hours
worked in the Semester/term and if the internship is paid or unpaid. See table below.

through individual academic departments and programs and/or the Career Center.
Students can officially enroll prior to attending the mandatory orientation.
Attend the mandatory orientation for each semester/term (click on the CRN for specific times
and locations).
Do students attend classes?
Yes. There is
one
mandatory class (orientation) meeting the week prior or first week of the
semester/term.
Does CWE find a
job or internship for me?
No. CWE provides a resource for students to apply to internships and receive credit for either a job
or internship. To be eligible to enroll in CWE, students will need to search and apply for a job or
internship.
What is
required of
my employer?
Employers will be required and must be willing to do the following:
Meet with a CWE Instructor
Sign off and approve the student’s workplace learning
objectives
Sign time sheet
Complete a mid and end-of-term job performance evaluation

GRADES
General Policies
The Work Experience is a letter-graded course.
Points are earned for all requirements of the program.
The Work Experience Instructor assigns the final grade.
Point Breakdown
Grade requirements will be set by each department/Work Experience Instructor who will assign the
final grade. Generally, items such as the completion of the Objectives Worksheet, the evaluation of
the success in completing each objective, the written report, submission of time sheets, and return
of the Program Evaluation are included.
Any missing item could result in an “F” Grade.
It is
the responsibility of the student to “DROP” this class if not able to complete.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
What are learning objectives?
Learning objectives are goals to be accomplished within the Work Experience Term. Prior to
beginning the Work Experience, students must attend an orientation where they learn how to
plan and design the objectives that will be established by the student, employer/supervisor, and
Work Experience Instructor.
Objectives are very specific, measurable, have defined goals and a completion date. They
include the following elements: the achievement or skill to be learned, how it will be measured,
the manner in which it will be accomplished, and when it will be completed.
A large part of the grade depends on the achievement of the objectives. Student input is
important and the following are guidelines to help in establishing objectives:
1. Make sure each objective is achievable within the time frame of the Work Experience.

earn will be a direct reflection of the quality of assignments and amount of effort you put forth. The point scale
identifies the max points that can be received for each required assignment, however, any missing assignment may
result in an “F” grade. All assignments including signatures are mandatory!
2. Make sure each objective is specific enough to be evaluated.
3. Objectives must involve new learning and/or expanded responsibilities, beyond those
experienced in previous employment or Work Experiences.
4. Make sure the objectives work by designing them to particular needs.
Quality of the objectives
Learning objectives are the most important component of a quality Work Experience. Clear,
challenging objectives will help students grown and perform well on the job and in the
classroom. Students in the Work Experience program do not simply earn units for working;
these units reflect specific learning based on measurable objectives. The learning objectives
are, in effect, a written agreement between the student, the employer, and Allan Hancock
College.
New objectives each term
New and/or expanded learning objectives must be identified each term. Students can draft their
objectives with the assistance of their employment supervisor and submit them to the Work
Experience Instructor for final approval. The learning objectives must then be signed by all three
parties and are to be turned in to the CWE Instructor.
How many objectives?
Three objectives are required of all students. Based on the purpose of the objectives, the degree of
difficulty, and the student’s ambitions, additional objectives may be set. Students are expected to
accomplish as much in their placement as they would in a regular classroom.
Guidelines for writing your objectives
Challenging yet achievable learning objectives are the single most important component of quality
Work Experience. It is likely that fifty percent (50%) of your grade is dependent on establishing and
reaching them. Objectives are measurable goals that you set for yourself (in conjunction with your
supervisor) to be accomplished by you through your Work Experience. They require that you learn
or make use of new habits, skills, or information above and beyond your current knowledge.
Each objective must be directly related to your career major and include these four parts: CWE 149
requires work related to major. CWE 302 is general in nature. The objectives will be designed by
your with assistance from your employer, and approved by your Work Experience Instructor.
Consider the following guidelines for your objectives:
1. The objectives must involve new learning, new growth, new responsibilities, or improvement on
the job.
2. Make sure the objectives are specific enough to achieve within the Work Experience term and
can be objectively evaluated.
3. The objectives you set should benefit your employer too.
4. Use an action verb to begin each objective that will describe what you intend to do. Avoid
vague or broad terms such as believe, understand, appreciate, get, etc.
There are four distinct “rules” for developing meaningful objectives, and they are as follows.
1. They must be very specific. What is it that you want to learn, achieve, or accomplish in your
Work Experience? For example:
Research law cases and write briefs.
Operative a camera in a studio and on location productions.
2. Determine what you method of accomplishment will be. How will you go about learning
the information you specified above? For example:
Practical hands-on application
Instruction/training from my supervisor and/or co-workers
14
Observation
Discussing techniques with other employees
Reading/studying manuals and tutorials
Videos
Workshops
Using computer programs
Reviewing files
Etc.
3. The results must be measurable. How will you and your supervisor be able to determine to
what degree each objective has been completed? For example:
Tests
Work Experience Instructor critique/evaluation
Videotape critique
Submit monthly reports and case files
Etc.
4. Specify a completion date. What is the deadline for each objective? Write a specific date
that is prior to the end of the semester.
Types of learning objectives
If you are new to Cooperative Work Experience and just entering your placement, you should have
an abundance of opportunities to learn information above and beyond the knowledge that you
already have. Think about what it is you want to learn while working. You might want to ask your
supervisor or other employees what suggestions they have; things they have found important to
know, or wished they had known early on in their career. This type of objective is most frequently
used in Cooperative Work Experience. Remember, you want to increase your breadth of knowledge.
Turning a current part time job into an internship position affords you the opportunity to use several
types of learning objectives:
New assignments. If you use your current part-time job as Work Experience, you will need to
have new learning experiences that can be stated in objective form. To assist you in writing
your new objectives you might consider the requirements of the job that is currently a step
above yours and what you need to learn in order to be promoted.
Routine duties. Think of new and creative ways you can improve the results of your daily job
duties or new aspects for improving efficiency.
Problem solving. Look at a problem you have run into on the job, dissect it and think of
possible solutions and/or improvements. Can you spot a potential problem in the making? If
you were in charge, what suggestions could you make to the person doing your job?
Personal improvement. How did your interactions at work develop a personal habits or social
skills that allowed you to become a more coveted employee? How could you improve your
communication with co-workers that would result in increased knowledge, new ideas, more
production, better cooperation, smoother workflow, etc?

Sample Objectives
General Work Experience CWE 302 Samples
Examples of Basic Learning Objectives:
Please note that the objectives include both WHAT the learning objectives are and HOW (actions
and activities) you will achieve those objectives. Remember that in order for a learning objectives to
be meaningful it must be measurable. When you are crafting your learning objectives try to
determine how they might be measured.
1. Acquire and develop basic employment responsibilities by being to work on time, returning from
breaks and lunch on time and promptly starting work.
2. Development of an understanding for the basic job tasks and responsibilities by asking
appropriate questions, receiving training and instruction in an open-minded way. Accepting
responsibility for both quality and unsatisfactory performance.
3. Demonstrates the ability to get along well with others in the work place by being courteous and
considerate of other employees and working to reduce tension under stressful conditions.
4. Completes job tasks effectively and with a degree of quality by proper use of equipment (such
as a cash register, computer terminal, and tools, etc.) in a skilled manner.
5. Maintains (or works toward) an acceptable volume of production by working quickly and
efficiently with given production standards. (This is usually measured in sales volume or
production per hour, etc.)
6. Demonstrates initiative commitment by using cross-selling techniques or suggestions which
would lead to increases in sales volume or reduction in costs.
Employers generally have specific jobs which require certain training and skills which must be
developed and reinforced. In order to develop these skills and talents there will be generally stated
objectives in the job description.
Please feel free to use the objectives which are designed for a
particular job.
The above examples are meant to be an aid for those employers or supervisors who work most
directly with the student employee and may not have developed specific learning objectives for the
position. The above examples can also be modified to a specific position or job with some minor
changes.
Vocational Work Experience CWE 149 Samples
The following examples are major specific and may or may not be appropriate for you, depending
on your current level of education and employment duties.
Program Major: Photography
Properly photograph evidence at a crime scene for court cases. I will read and use the
procedures from department manuals and receive on site instruction from my supervisor.
The procedures will be learned by the end of the semester and at least two photographs will
have been accepted in court as evidence.
17
Program Major: Marketing (Sales)
Increase my personal sales by 10% over last year’s total. I will do this by developing a
written plan to include sales suggestions, producing a better sales presentation, and learning
more about the products sold.
Sales will be measured by comparing last year’s figures covering the same dates with the
semester. The objective will be completed by May 16, 20XX.
Program Major: Film & Video
Demonstrate the ability to operate a camera in a studio and on location productions. This
will be accomplished by training from camera operators, observation, and practical work. My
supervisor will evaluate my work by having me explain the operation of the camera and
viewing a production I filmed. My supervisor will evaluate my ability by May 16, 20XX.
Attendance & Time Sheet
You may begin to accumulate hours once you have completed the CWE Orientation
process either in person or online via the CWE Website. It is the student’
responsibility to record their hours worked. One a daily basis, CWE students are to log
their work hours. At the end of each term, it is the CWE student’s responsibility to
finalize the time sheet and have it confirmed by his/her supervisor. Once signed by the
student/employee and supervisor, the time sheet must be turned in to the Work
Experience Instructor before the due date (see the CWE Website or Course Syllabus for
individual term due dates). The time sheet, as well as, other required CWE forms can
be found on the CWE Website or obtained by the CWE Instructor.
Student Report
Prior to the end of the semester, students are required to write a student report (CWE 302, 2-4
pages), (CWE 149, 4-6 pages) that is a reflection of what they have learned through their Work
Experience. All reports must be typed and double-spaced using Times New Roman 12pt. font, 1”
margins, and the title page should have their name, the employer and CWE Instructor name. The
grade is based on content grammar, spelling, punctuation, and presentation. The final report is to
be turned into the Work Experience Instructor please see the semester calendar for submission
deadlines.
The Work Experience Instructor may indicate a specific topic, format or length s/he
wants addressed in the paper, otherwise you must choose one of the following five
topics and follow the instructions above:
1. Evaluate the use of objectives and the Work Experience: Some questions to consider
when writing your paper: How did you choose your learning objectives? What was it like to sit
down with your employer and discuss both your expectations? Did you find the objectives
helpful in directing your learning experience? What did you learn by completing the objectives
that you might not otherwise have learned? Did your supervisor follow through on his/her
commitment to teach you new information/skills? What did you learn from using your
objectives?
2. Evaluate the effectiveness of the Work Experience program: Some questions to
consider when writing your paper: Was the experience valuable to your future
goals/employment? If it was valuable, how? And if not why not? How did the experience
influence your future career decision(s)? What were the benefits and what were the drawbacks
of the program?
18
3. Describe your ideal career: Some questions to consider when writing your paper: What is
important to you in your job? Do you have a “career-ladder” philosophy or do you see yourself
in one job, at one level? When do you think about your career future? What are you willing to
sacrifice in your life to “move up the ladder”? What would you NOT give up for your career?
How can Allan Hancock College help you attain your ideal career? What else will you need to
make it happen for yourself?
4. Suggestions that might improve efficiency & productivity at your jobsite: Some
things to consider when writing your paper: In your place of work how is efficiency and
productivity identified? How do you know if you are meeting the efficiency and productivity
expectations at your place of work? Analyze your job site, then discuss the current levels of
efficiency/productivity, and describe how you would go about improving efficiency and
productivity (make sure you include changes in procedure and workflow). What could be
eliminated to improve efficiency? This is our opportunity to be creative yet realistic.
5. Research the career opportunities available within your field of study/job: Some
things to consider when writing your paper: Identify the pros and cons concerning this field of
study or occupation. Include the necessary education, training, pay scales, occupational outlook
(employment possibilities), hours of work, and potential for promotion, drawbacks and benefits.
Which organizations hire people in this career? What is the demand for workers in this career
cluster? What can you do that might give you an “edge” for future employment in your field?
Please note the Allan Hancock College Career and Technical Education Center (CTEC) has
information about many occupations and careers. The library is also a great resource for this
project.
