Admission Requirements Tuition and Fees Program Structure

 

Our English programs, courses and assessments fit many different types of needs you may have to boost or provide evidence of your English language skills.

College and Career Preparation Program

You can boost your English language skills as part of our College and Career Preparation program. This program helps you upgrade your education level to let you enter apprenticeships, college programs, university programs or to help you gain employment skills.

The program is made up of subjects and skills in the Grades 10, 11 and 12 equivalency levels. Your background and goals will determine the program's length of time. You will obtain Grade 12 credentials to open doors to post-secondary programs and the entry level job market.

In some instances, we can grant credits if you have completed high school-level courses in Canadian English-language schools or Canadian post-secondary institutions.

Career Opportunities

Depending on your career goals, taking the College Preparation program will prepare you for post-secondary programs in:

  • Business
  • Biological, Environmental and Earth Sciences
  • Community and Human Service
  • Engineering and Engineering Technology
  • Health Sciences
  • Power Engineering and Process Operations
  • Trades and Technologies

Admission Requirements

It is important to first meet with a student advisor, counsellor or program chairperson to determine your educational and career goals before applying to the College and Career Preparation program.

To be admitted to the program, you must:
