Our Career Services department has a mandate to develop partnerships with the business community while providing relevant practical experience for our students.

- All students are evaluated by Career Services before they are approved for a work term placement.
- The student does not receive any remuneration for the work term placement, as it is part of their diploma program.
- Students are aware that their behaviour must be professional at all times.
- Employers will be provided with an evaluation form to be completed at the end of the work term.
Our students have a variety of educational backgrounds, from high school through to university degrees. As well, there are many that have prior work experience and have returned to upgrade their skills.
