Sprott Shaw helped me to achieve my goals to become an HCA.

StephenSuccess 300x225 Sprott Shaw helped me to achieve my goals to become an HCA.Their courses that they offered are more competitive in the job market, and being in class I found that Sprott Shaw was a great place to learn. Both the instructors as well as the non teaching staff all co-operatively worked together to help me achieve my academic goals. During my time at school, they found me a clinical site to work at where I could further use my hands on learning, and at the end, the place where I did my clinical hired me on! I gained a lot of knowledge from Sprott Shaw and I am a better Heath Care Assistant because of it!

As a mother I am constantly thinking about providing the best possible life for my daughter. I felt that obtaining a post-secondary education would be the best way to ensure that I could do that for her. Through hard work, perseverance, as well as the support of the staff at Sprott Shaw College, I will be graduating with Legal Assistant Honours Diploma. In addition I was able to secure employment before my last day of class. Thank you Sprott Shaw!

I am so glad I got over my hesitation on going back to school…

nadineSuccess 300x215 I am so glad I got over my hesitation on going back to school...

I came to Sprott Shaw searching for something, but I wasn’t really sure what. I was sitting in Phil’s office, hoping that he would have the magic course. Well, he didn’t, but it turns out that I did. I wanted to be a paralegal, but Phil let me know that there wasn’t much of a call for that here on the Island. So, I decided to pursue the Legal Assistant program.

Everything else happened so quickly my head was spinning. The next thing I knew I was starting school. I hadn’t been to school in a few years so I was a little nervous. I wondered what I had gotten myself into a lot! I met some great people in class and have made some good friends.

I finish my class at the end of June, and have been lucky to have found a job that will allow me to work part time until I am finished. I started on Monday, and I work with the best bunch of people. They are so helpful and so nice.

I am so glad I got over my hesitation on going back to school, because now I think I have found the right direction!

I am GRATEFUL to [...] Sprott Shaw

Karens Grad Photo 2 233x300 I am GRATEFUL to [...] Sprott ShawAt the age of 44 I decided to go back to school. I had been in retail on and off for 25 years and just could not do it anymore. My soul was literally crying out for fulfillment! I was scared and unrealistically afraid to fail. I wanted to go back to school a long time ago and my fear of failure stopped me from going at all. Finally I just couldn’t do retail anymore and went in and registered for the H.C.A. program at Sprott Shaw in Surrey. I live in a world where just going to school was not an option so had to face working full-time and going to school full-time. I was worried about how I would juggle the two and how would I have time to study or even do homework! For 7 months day by day I went to school at 6:30am to do homework and study and then went to work. I got a max of 4-4 1/2 hours sleep a night and on exam days even less because I got up at 3:30am to study as I had no other time to do so. I got most of my homework done and aced almost every exam. I finally graduated and w/Honours no less. I couldn’t believe it and sometimes still can’t. I am GRATEFUL to some of the women at Sprott Shaw for their constant encouragement even when I came in tears from shear exhaustion and frustration pushing me to keep going and here I am now working where I did my first practicum and very happy indeed! It was a tough slog and it took everything in me to do it…but “I DID IT”! WOOHOO!! Thank you Sprott Shaw and specifically Lois (instructor), Shelley (finance), Aimée (career planning) and Angela (clinical instructor)! Without you gals I would not be where I am today!

The instructors and staff supported me every step of the way and made sure I am prepared for my new career. I liked how the instructors were able to explain things clearly, and basing instruction on real life. The class times are convenient and small so she was able to get extra help if needed.

Coming to Sprott Shaw has helped me reach my goals one step at a time

Nicole Lencacha 250x300 Coming to Sprott Shaw has helped me reach my goals one step at a timeBefore starting school I was extremely unsatisfied with the employment options available without furthering my education. While attending Sprott Shaw I not only enjoyed my time here, but when I was done with the program and started my job search I realized just how many options were now available to me. My dream is to work with abused women and children and right now I am working in a preschool to gain more experience while I keep working towards my dream. Thanks Sprott Shaw!

Sprott Shaw helped set me up for the career I have today, in the industry I love.

photo1 225x300 Sprott Shaw helped set me up for the career I have today, in the industry I love.Sprott Shaw College was a great experience. I chose Sprott Shaw after researching programs elsewhere and found their program to be 6 months as opposed to 2+ years at other colleges.

Sprott Shaw’s fast paced courses kept me intrigued throughout the duration of my program, Marketing and Sales Essentials.

One exceptional aspect of the school was the small class sizes which meant I received one on one time with my instructors when I needed it.

Sprott Shaw also offered the option of an internship which helped set me up for the career I have today, in the industry I love.

You will be amazed at the support you will receive!

lisa 224x300 You will be amazed at the support you will receive!Sprott Shaw College Kelowna would like to congratulate Arion Farms on their recent hire of Lisa D., Community Support Worker Social Services.

“I was out of the school scene since 2004 and I was very concerned that I had lost my learning ability. Although I was academically challenged at times, the support from my Instructor and fellow classmates helped me to achieve a 4.33 GPA! I am ecstatic about this new opportunity and never thought I was capable! Now look at me! My advice to anyone who is considering going back to school is to stay strong and do not be afraid to ask questions to get to where you want to go! You will be amazed at the support you will receive! I now have the love and affection from my new Sprott Shaw family!”

Congrats Lisa! We are proud of you!
