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

Marketing and Sales CoursesSprott 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.

CatherineMcDonaldI had a wonderful experience at Sprott Shaw College. Without all of the staff and their genuine care and support through my illnesses and injury, I am not sure if I could have ever done it alone. You were my backbone and pillar of strength – A BIG THANK YOU!

You will be amazed at the support you will receive!

Community Support WorkerSprott 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!

My advice for students is find yourself a good network of support and DON’T GIVE UP!!”

No words can express the relief for the opportunity to gain independence.

AlexandraI’M HIRED! For a full-time position as an LPN Supervisor.

No words can express the relief for the opportunity to gain independence.

Thank you to all of you for your time, for teaching and supporting us through what seemed like an eternity in completing the PN program! It was worth it! My teenagers have also learned by this… they said “I don’t want to be stressed out when I am old and go back to college, I want to get it over with now!” Hey if it took me suffering to help them identify the importance… I’m good with that!

Smiles and warm thoughts to all,

They taught me how to have more confidence.

Health Care Assistant GradMy name is Amanda B. and I have successfully completed the Health Care Assistant program at Sprott Shaw College in Kamloops. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and why I chose to enter the program. My grandfather was dying from prostate cancer and I helped take care of him, he asked me to promise him that one day I would go into a career helping others. He said that since I was such a gentle soul and was so helpful I would be a great caregiver.

I made this promise in July of 2000; sadly he passed away on the 21st of the month. Back then, I was a single mother and working three part-time jobs and couldn’t afford to go back to school. Now that I am in a long-term relationship with four kids, I thought, “OK, this is the time for me to follow through with the promise my grandfather asked me to make.”

I went online and filled in the information on the Sprott Shaw website and within 10 minutes I had a phone call to set up an appointment to inquire about enrolling into the HCA program. I filled out the paperwork with Student Aid BC and was approved to get funding for the program. When I started in November 2012 I was scared and excited all in one. The Instructor that I had was amazing, caring, understanding and friendly. She helped me when I needed extra help and not only taught the course but taught me how to have more confidence in myself and how to deal with certain scenarios that I may encounter once I entered the work force.

As of April 2013, I was out into facilities doing my practicum with my clinical instructor. She was also a great instructor and was supportive if I was unsure of anything. Practicum is a total of 8 weeks long and as I approached my 3rd week I thought to myself, “what harm is there in applying for jobs?”

Not even two weeks later, I had an interview at a local care facility. After waiting impatiently, I received an email with an offer. I gladly accepted it, registered for my license, and was scheduled to start immediately.

Now I have been asked to share my story with others not only to show my success but also to acknowledge Sprott Shaw’s support in making my grandfather’s request a reality.

I chose the HCA as a career because I felt that it was an opportunity to give back to the community and to provide care and support to our seniors. I also volunteer at a local care facility because I feel that my grandfather has inspired me to be an excellent caregiver and to extend help to those in need.
