Welcome to our Sprott Shaw Penticton College Campus! We are located in the heart of the South Okanagan, easily accessed from Summerland, the Oliver / Osoyoos region and Keremeos to the west.
Penticton, BC, Canada is an amazing little city nestled between not 1, but 2, world famous lakes; we are hot in the summer and mild in the winter. Spend the summer at the beach, floating down the river channel or exploring the surrounding hills and vineyards. Just don’t forget to pick up some fresh, locally grown fruit along the way. If winter is your season for fun, we are a short 30 minute drive from Apex Ski Resort, home of world class skiing and boarding.
So why come to our campus? Let’s start with the dedicated, qualified instructors and move on to the educational standards that surpass industry expectations. What about the small classes that encourage communication and interaction between students and instructors. Let’s not forget the lifetime refresher program available to every one of our graduates.
Our Practical Nursing program, though young, has shown amazing results and interest within the local and surrounding communities. Some of our graduates have been offered positions BEFORE they completed – way to go! Still with healthcare, our respected Health Care Assistant program offers monthly intakes so that you can “get in, get out and get working”. If you are from the Oliver/Osoyoos community, you may be interested in the HCA satellite class offered in conjunction with Mariposa Gardens. You can go to school and train on-site in your own community. Ask us about the dates for this class.
We are very excited to have Brenda Barber on board to lead our Early Childhood Education program. Brenda is a highly respected author and instructor in the field of education, specializing in early childhood and developmental education.
Our students have been hired by numerous community businesses and agencies such as:
|Interior Health||Haven Hill|
|Summerland Senior’s Village||Nurse Next Door|
|We Care||The Hamlets|
|Village by the Station||H & R Block|
|Portage Addiction Centre||PDSCL|
Where can you find us? We are at 2603 Skaha Lake Road – the #5 bus stops right out front and you can easily walk to either Walmart or Cherry Lane Mall. If you prefer to drive, there is plenty of free parking available. An added bonus of our location…Tim Horton’s is one of our neighbours – so you can get your Timmy’s fix on a daily basis.
So whether you are in town for the International Children’s Festival, Peach Fest, Iron Man, Octoberfest or any of the other renowned local events, stop in and say hello, we like meeting new friends.
