Looking for a career in early childhood education, social services, or veterinary but don’t know where to get started?
On Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 1:15 – 2:30pm
Career College will be hosting an info session for those who are
interested in learning about how to enter these challenging and dynamic
- Early Childhood Education
(ECE) requires a cornucopia of hard and soft skills. Primarily working
with infants and toddlers, early childhood educators and assistants will
provide care and guidance to children as young as three months. At such
an impressionable age, ECEs can have a great impact on the mental,
emotional, and psychological health and upbringing of a child. Students
who graduate from the diploma program can continue to do a Post-Basic with focuses on Infant/Toddler Specialization or Special Needs Specialization. Guest Speaker: Mandy Purewal
- Social services workers face a number of challenging situations on a
daily basis. Cases can range from alcoholism, drug abuse, domestic
violence, and more. While cases may seem similar, no two are identical.
Just as important as any other career, social services professionals
rely on their experiences to solve and resolve difficult situations they
come across, which is why students enrolled in the Social Services Worker Foundation
program will complete a mandatory practicum prior to graduation so they
can employ and further develop the strategies they have learned in
class on real cases. Students also have a choice between Recovery Specialist and Youth Specialist as well. Guest Speaker: Alana Dhillon
- Veterinary assistants
play a great role in animal care clinics and are essential to the
smooth functioning of the office. As the veterinarian attends to other
patients, they rely strongly on their assistants to monitor, document,
and address any other issues in their absence. In such a sensitive
field, organization, diligence, and strong observational skills are a
must. Guest Speaker: Yazli Satleghi
