In 1964 , Majorie came to the Victoria campus of what was then “Sprott-Shaw School of Commerce” straight out of high school from her hometown in rural Alberta. Looking back, she describes her time in Victoria as a “life-changing event” and that the “things I learned and the talents I acquired gave me a life-long career […] as an Administrative Assistant.”
Back in 1964, the curriculum included training in things such as “how to sit properly” and “hair and make-up no-no’s.” Today, things have changed a lot since then, but as British Columbia’s oldest career trainer, Sprott Shaw College continues to develop relevant, career-oriented Business programs that meet the needs of BC’s fastest-growing companies. Our Business programs offer unique combinations of Management, Sales, and Administrative training including both Traditional and Digital Marketing courses. These programs provide our graduates with the breadth of knowledge and training needed for the career of their choice.
In today’s business world, understanding and experience in digital marketing are essential. We offer courses and training in Web Design, Search Engine Optimization, Web Analytics, Social Media and more. You need to know more than just Facebook to succeed in today’s economy, so we combine these courses with Management, Sales or Administrative training to give you everything you need to succeed.
