Welcome to Greater Lowell Technical High School’s Jobs Board. College Central Network (CCN) is the platform for our jobs board. This will allow employers to post jobs and students and alumni to search for jobs, create resumes and portfolios, as well as accessing many career planning tools.
Employers and Alumni can register for an account with Greater Lowell Tech. Current students will be emailed with pre-registration account information. Current students will use their school ID number and school email address and create a unique password to complete the registration.
The Cooperative Education Placement Program provides students with an exciting opportunity to expand their educational knowledge and experience in a real work environment that directly relates to their career goals. Students gain valuable employability experience while furthering their understanding of their occupational field within a structured, supervised environment.
Greater Lowell Technical High School partners with companies in the community that will hire our students every other week. Instead of a student attending school on their shop week, students report to work and/or job sites.
Students participating in the cooperative education program are expected to work a minimum of six (6) hours every day that school is in session. If a student is going to miss a day of work, the student must notify the employer and Director of Cooperative Education at 978-441-4959 that morning so the student can be marked absent for that day. If a student is not scheduled to work on a school day, that student must report to school. Students must turn in weekly time cards to the technical instructor and Director of Cooperative Education every academic week.
- Employ students a minimum of 30 hours per week of assignments related to the student’s technical program
