Job Preparation Students Sitting in Classroom


The Job Preparation option provides an opportunity for students to investigate and prepare for future work and academic opportunities.  They will identify options for involvement in campus, community and work settings.  Students will build essential skills through a combination of employment-oriented classroom instruction and monitored work experience.


How much does Job Preparation cost?

Students pay an application fee pf $40, plus moderate program fees (approximately $1,100). In some cases, various government ministries may pay a portion of these costs.  This program is defined as adult upgrading and students may be eligible for the Adult Upgrading Grant.
