Take action to reach your employment goals. This 11-week program combines work exploration and career planning in a classroom setting.

Broken into three components, explained in detail below, this program can be customized to address specific group needs. Individualized assistance is also provided through coaching sessions and mutually agreed upon tasks. This will assist participants in creating their final action plan that will bring them closer to their employment goals. Post-program support is offered for six months following the completion of the program.

Action Plan

Make yourself accountable by measuring your success.

Participants are required to complete a final action plan before program completion. This action plan will consolidate learnings and skills acquired from the program. Through individual consultations as well as group workshops, the action plan will be reviewed and modified with alternative actions should initial plans prove to be unsuccessful. The action plan will identify steps taken to date, results and future activities required for you to achieve your employment objectives.

Follow-up

We aim to assist you in following your path to achieving your career goal.

Every participant will have a vision and plan put in place before graduating from the program. Post-program support is offered for six months after the program is completed. To get more individual support and guidance, follow-up appointments can be booked over the phone or by email.
