REAL PEOPLE, REAL EXPERIENCES
My experience at Vx3 is one of the most fun and educational experiences I’ve had so far. My favourite activity was recording voiceovers for commercials. The experience also helped me to be more confident, and I established a few good friendships, one in particular was very important, without that one person, I don't think that I would be in school to be honest. I'm proud to tell people that I did my co-op placement with VX3 Exchange.
Co-Op Education - Bloor Collegiate Institute
VX3 Exchange has provided a dynamic and exciting placement for high school co-op students. Our student, who does not always connect with learning by sitting in a classroom, has learned a lot from his placement. He is completely comfortable with the equipment, recording segments for shows and adding in his own creative flare.The supervisors have been wonderful at staying in touch and informing me on my student's progress.
Staff wasted no time guiding me. They all went out of their way to teach me things I never thought I’d have the chance to learn like production skills, the art of interviewing, research techniques, storytelling, news and music reporting and so much more. Learning these skills gave me a whole new level of confidence and every opportunity I have been given at VX3 has allowed me to nurture a genuine sense of purpose in life.

The staff at VX3 Exchange are generous in offering our students hands-on opportunities for actual, practical participation in the preparation of products for broadcast and online, and also because the staff consistently holds interns to a high standard of performance.The result is a meaningful experience for our students – helping them, in their final semester of journalism school, prepare to bridge from the classroom to the workplace.
