Covid-19 has changed the way we do things, but one thing that has remained the same is our commitment to ensuring our students have opportunities to gain real work experience before they graduate. We continue to encourage our partners and employers around the Greater Toronto Area to work with students, whether it be virtual or following the proper protocols to be in person.
Here are three success stories
What are the benefits of hosting a student?
- Students are enthusiastic and ready to learn.
- Students are often available year-round and can help fill seasonal, peak or temporary staffing needs.
- You’ll gain a fresh perspective and ideas from students.
- You’ll get a first-hand look at potential future employees who have already trained in your business.

Become a Field Placement Partner for Community Services and Health Sciences
Field placements are a critical part of our students’ education because they provide an opportunity to put classroom theory into practice. Made possible through our many valued partners, our students are placed in clinics, social service organizations and other workplaces where they engage with families and children from within our communities. It’s here where they gain invaluable experience that gives them the confidence they need to get started in their new career of choice. It also allows employers the opportunity to see first-hand just how well trained, professional and workplace-ready our students truly are.
