Co-Curricular Record (CCR) FAQ
How does the CCR support my student experience and my career trajectory?
- Your CCR is a portfolio of your co-curricular experiences and it demonstrates that you are invested in your personal and professional growth. Your CCR shows the ways you seek out opportunities for meaningful involvement in the Conestoga community.
- All CCR eligible opportunities are linked to specific learning outcomes based on transferable skills and knowledge that employers across all industries are seeking, including interpersonal skills, leadership, and innovation.
- You can use your CCR to help write your resume and articulate your learning experiences when applying to jobs, co-op positions, volunteer roles, scholarships, additional post-secondary programs, or any other instances when you may need to demonstrate skills and knowledge gained outside of your academic program.
- Access your unofficial CCR at any point during your studies on the CCP; you can reorganize your experiences to highlight specific opportunities. You can also request your official CCR at the end of each term or the end of your studies. You will receive a PDF that you can attach to job applications or add to your LinkedIn profile.
How do I find events that I can include on my CCR?
The Co-Curricular Portal (CCP) is full of hundreds of workshops, clubs, committees, volunteer roles, and recreational opportunities each term, many of which are eligible for CCR recognition. You can search events by theme, date, or category to find opportunities that will enhance your student experience. Click on an event for more details, including whether it is eligible for CCR recognition and the learning outcomes that you will develop through your participation.
All students also receive the Get Involved Guide each week in their Conestoga inbox with some highlighted opportunities for the upcoming week.
How does CCR recognition work?
Once you have fulfilled the requirements of a CCR eligible opportunity, you will receive an email with instructions on how to write a reflection on your learning in the CCP. In order to receive official recognition on your CCR, you must write a short reflection explaining how the opportunity enabled you to achieve one or more of the associated learning outcomes.
If your reflection is submitted by the deadline and approved by the facilitator, you will see the opportunity listed on your CCR within three to four weeks.
If your reflection is denied, you will receive a follow-up email from firstname.lastname@example.org with an opportunity to provide more detail. However, to save yourself the time, it’s best to submit a detailed reflection in the first place.
