Programs that fit you

Whether you're looking for entry-level skills, creative hands-on learning, or a training environment that suits how you learn best, Employment Training and Preparation (ETP) programs provide options.

ETP prepares you for entering employment in industries that focus on customer service, food service, gardening and food production and construction and materials handling.

A supportive learning environment

We offer flexible learning programs that start where you are now and provide a foundation to help you develop the confidence to pursue further learning, volunteering and employment. We will support you to connect with the college community and enjoy meaningful employment experiences.

Whether you love getting your hands in the dirt or working with people, our supportive staff will help you grow.

Sharpen your skills!

Gain customer service, time management and communication skills. You'll learn telephone and interview skills, how to deal with common workplace problems, and how to prepare a resumé and undertake an effective job search. 

We’ll prepare you to ask questions that will help you when job hunting and give you opportunities to work on basic reading, writing and arithmetic skills. As well, you can get certifications like First Aid, WorldHost, FoodSafe and a modified WHMIS.

Pathways for Life, Learning and Work

Pathways for Life is designed for secondary school students who have barriers to education and employment and who are looking for a non-academic, hands-on learning experience. Over six consecutive weeks starting in April, you’ll discover what it takes to be successful in an adult learning environment and practice communication, employment, learning and networking skills. Through this South Island Partnership program, you’ll explore campus and community opportunities to help you determine the best next step after high school.

If you choose an ETP program following Pathways to Life, you’ll have a head start on your studies.
