Welcome to the Sprott Shaw Victoria Campus! We are centrally located and easily accessible with a major bus stop at our doorstep, close to Victoria shopping and night life.
As a private education institute for over 100 years, Sprott Shaw College prides itself on providing high quality graduates in many fields. In today’s economy, the focus is on transferable skills and employees need to be able to fill many roles. From the admissions process to graduate placement services, Sprott Shaw works hard to serve the needs of Victoria community by simplifying the steps needed to get started on a new career.
Sprott Shaw Victoria College collaborates closely with many employers within our community to ensure our training not only meets their needs, but surpasses their expectations. Employers frequently visit the campus and give HR seminars to the students on how to apply to their organization. This combined with the career planning programs that are in place at the campus, allows the students access to the important people making decisions on their future. Students are also shown the secrets of getting in the door.
Some employers we work with include:
- Government of British Columbia
- Government of Canada
- Canadian Armed Forces
- Victoria Shipyards
- Vancouver Island Health Authority
- Coast Capital Savings
Some of the top reasons students choose us over other schools are: our policy of acknowledging real life experience, and factoring this into the admission process; our FREE “lifetime refresher training”, which ensures grads and potential employers alike keep their skills up to date by having access to on-going professional development. In addition, our multiple start dates and flexible, small class sizes, offer a more personalized, interactive environment that ensures student success. Also students are continuously supported by individualized career counseling provided by accredited Career Advisors who are informed on current market and career trends and are network specialist in their communities.
