Programs And Services
If you are interested in upgrading your academic skills, the first step is to make an appointment for a goal-directed assessment. During your one-on-one assessment, you will meet with an education counsellor to discuss your long-term goals, previous school experiences, and learning needs. If, after this meeting, the program seems to be a good option, you will be asked to complete an academic assessment which includes reading, writing, and math tasks. This assessment helps us determine the skills you will need to develop to prepare you to transition to your employment, post-secondary, apprenticeship/training goal path.
