The School to Business Placement Portal is a partnership between the Chamber of Commerce Brantford-Brant, the Brant-Haldimand-Norfolk Catholic District School Board and the Grand Erie District School Board, that provides a central online location where students can access experiential learning opportunities in the local community. The portal is comprised of two types of experiential learning:
- Co-op placement opportunities with local businesses
- Volunteer opportunities with not-for-profit organizations, as well as businesses (where there is a charitable program in place)
The Process (it’s so simple!)
1. Go to the Placement Portal Home Page and register your organization.
2. List your placement opportunity (or opportunities) and provide a few details. That’s it!
Within hours of registering, you will receive an email from Chamber staff confirming your registration. (If additional information is required, we will contact you).
At the moment your confirmation email is received, your placement opportunity goes online, and will display in volunteer opportunity searches conducted by students and their teachers.
The portal is checked daily by students, staff and administration. Co-op placements are arranged by teachers and volunteer placements are arranged by the students themselves (upon teacher approval).
When do I register? You can register right now! Click here to go directly to the registration page. Returning users (businesses/organizations that have registered) can access their information through the login link located on the portal home page.
