Access Programs at Capilano University (September 2023)

November 17, 2022 @ 4:30 pm PST

Join for a virtual presentation of the two Access programs that are offered at Capilano University in September 2023.
Discover Employability is a pre-employment program for students with developmental disabilities who need support to develop more skills for future paid employment. Our courses focus on employability skills, social skills, personal finances, computer skills and safety skills at work. We schedule three separate work experience sessions in different sectors to increase the student’s experience and independence at work. Preference for this program will be given to north shore students.
Education and Employment Access is offered for students with learning differences (ASD, ADHD, anxiety, mental health issues) who may be accepted into typical first year university programs and courses, however the jump from high school to university is huge and these students will benefit from some preparation!  This program teaches the expectations of university and employment in a sector of their interest and potential. Students in EEA may have a career goal in mind but need to develop skills and get some documented work experience in that field of interest. Included in the spring term is a 6 week practicum, arranged by instructors with consultation with the student. A reading and writing comprehension assessment is given during the intake interview.
