Career Transition Programs in Edmonton
What comes after language training? Across the province, teachers want to know more about potential career paths for their learners. As a result, we compiled an information panel of programs from different organizations that support ESL learners’ transition into specific professions and the world of work. Come with your questions and learn about options for learners! Our panelists include representatives from the following organizations and programs:
EMCN’s workplace oriented programs
- Accountants’ Bridging Program
- Program for internationally educated accountants at a CLB 6 or higher
- Engineers' & Technologists' Integration Program for internationally educated engineers
- Payroll Professional Program
- Day home provider program
- LINC Works
- Hospitality Management Diploma Program
- Food Service Supervisor Preparation Program
This presentation is prepared by ATESL’s Advocacy Committee ESL to Work team. We collect research and resources to support teachers in helping our learners transition to work.
