The Education and Employment Access program is designed to support young adults, no longer in high school, who may have barriers to success in education and employment. These barriers may include learning difficulties (ADHD, dyslexia or autism spectrum disorder) and/or mental health issues such as anxiety or depression.

Courses focus on developing the skills and strategies to be an independent learner in a university or employment setting. Through assessment, classroom work and individualized support students will explore career and education options, set goals and create a specific plan to achieve them.

Classes emphasize skills such as practical communication, resume writing, interviewing skills and student success strategies. The second term includes a practicum in a sector of the student’s choice.

Requirements for acceptance in the program are reading and writing comprehension at Grade 4/5 level, independent self-management skills and motivation to achieve goals. Students with either the Dogwood or Evergreen certificate are encouraged to apply. High school transcripts are not required.

Learn about this unique program. The Birch building is the one with the cafeteria, theatre and bookstore.
