Throughout the past few weeks, the world has
witnessed unprecedented events that have, ultimately, changed the way we live
our everyday lives. While few could have ever predicted the turn and severity
of these events, we want to thank all of our students for their ongoing and
continuous support during this time. We understand it is an unsettling period for
all of us but rest assured, the safety of our students and the safety of our
staff is always at the top of our minds.
At Sprott Shaw College, we are committed to
your ongoing education and career aspirations, and we will continue to uphold
this support throughout these challenging times. Over the course of a few days,
we have successfully transitioned our students and classes to our alternative
learning delivery on Synchronous WebEx. Our campuses received enormous amounts
of compliments and expressions of gratitude from students so a big thank you
goes out to our students and staff for their patience and support throughout
this transition – thank you!
We are thrilled to have introduced our alternative
learning delivery for current students. Synchronous WebEx Delivery is now available
for incoming and prospective students as well – this new learning experience is
available for the vast majority of our programs.
WebEx is a video conferencing platform that
allows us to maintain virtual “face-to-face” structured classes that are 100%
instructor-led. These virtual classes create an interactive and engaging
learning experience for our students in the safety and security of their own
homes. Moreover, our small WebEx class sizes provide students with the
dedicated attention and support they deserve from our instructors while also
allowing us to maintain the high quality of education we have promised and
delivered for over the past 117 years.
With our Online Admissions process and Synchronous WebEx Delivery, we look forward to continuing to train and prepare our students for careers in business, healthcare, nursing, community support, early childhood education, administration, trades and much more. We are committed to your ongoing education as well as your career aspirations and we are here for you – for now through our WebEx platform, but also for our in-person on-campus delivery in the near future. To all, stay well, practice social distancing and stay strong.
