Carlton Trail College students are heading in for another session of full-face to face classes in addition to traditional distance offerings. Programming starts in earnest in September across its campuses.

“We’ve got a mix of post-secondary students returning to all of our locations,” says Jennifer Brooks, advancement and external affairs director for the College, “Including English language training participants, Grades 10 and 12 adult basic education learners, plus other individuals connected to programs such as pre-apprenticeship trades training programs, in partnership with BHP.”

That’s in addition to programs in first aid, health, and safety training classes. Staff from the College connected at  learning and community engagement even at its Four Winds Learning Centre in Punnichy.

Post-secondary programs include: Office Administration; Agriculture Sciences; Continuing Care Assistant; Supportive Care Assistant; Practical Nursing; Primary Care Paramedic; Security Officer; Electrician, Early Childhood Education; Welding. A few seats remain in Office Administration, Early Childhood Education, Continuing Care Assistant, and Ag Sciences.

Students wanting to enrol in Adult Basic Education and academic upgrading classes still have time to register, says Brooks. Those courses are offered in several locations including Humboldt, Punnichy, Wadena, Wakaw, Wynyard. 

English Language Training programming continues to be offered in a variety of formats including in-person, online and blended (a combination of in-person learning and online learning) in a variety of locations. Classes are free to eligible participants.The College continues its cooperation with the Humboldt Regional Newcomer Centre to connect individuals with appropriate classes.  The College continues to provide “employment English” classes to support those working toward developing skills for workers. 

“We also want to remind business and industry that we can connect to or customize training that meets your workforce needs, including options that may qualify for provincial training subsidies,” says Brooks. 

As fall programs continue to come on stream throughout September and October, the hall and classrooms at all Carlton Trail College campuses will once again fill with eager learners.
