When Carla Vankoughnett first applied to Sprott Shaw, she looked forward to the one-on-one time with instructors that Sprott Shaw offers. Unlike many colleges with large lecture halls, Sprott Shaw provides students a personalized learning experience with small class sizes and approachable faculty.
For Carla, the application process at Sprott Shaw was straight forward, and the admissions officials were available to help her step-by-step with her student loan application. But the support that Carla received when she began her program didn’t end there.
The encouragement that Carla received from her instructors proved to be invaluable. At Sprott Shaw she was able to work with advisors and determine what career path was best suited to her personality. Sprott’s career advisors are passionate about helping students explore all options when it comes to career exploration including, personal career development options and career change. They also focus on student’s personality traits, interests and skills in order to help them find enriching careers that they will find success in.
“I actually first envisioned myself teaching high-school literature. But after working with the advisors to gauge my skills, personality, and interests, they helped me realize what I really wanted.”
With the support from her advisors, Carla decided to pursue early childhood education at Sprott Shaw. With the encouragement she received from her instructors and advisors, Carla was able to achieve her educational goals, and publish two children’s books.
“They helped me achieve my goals and showed a spectacular amount of encouragement; without Sprott Shaw I would have never had the courage to publish my books.”
Many graduates from our Early Childhood find success working in preschools, group child care facilitation, out-of-school care programs and infant child care. Best of all, Sprott Shaw grads have access to dedicated employment services specialists, who will help grads find meaningful work once courses end.
