This job-readiness program is designed to meet the unique educational and vocational needs of people who may not normally consider or qualify for entry into a traditional post-secondary program. It is an individualized, supportive program to help bridge the gap for students who have graduated from high school with predominantly workplace or possibly college credits. This program may be suitable for students with an Ontario Secondary School Certificate or Diploma who are having difficulty finding appropriate and meaningful work.
Using a cohort model, the program helps students to develop academic, practical and social skills, and offers extensive assessment through the use of several vocational tools. In addition, students participate in career planning, communication and life skills training, and a work experience placement. Students use the computer lab to enhance keyboarding skills and to prepare resumés and cover letters. Students enrolled in this program are eligible for loans and grants.
