Yvonne Pilote, Community Support Worker – Social Services


What were you doing before attending Sprott Shaw College?

I had my own business selling ink and toner for printers

Why did you choose Sprott Shaw College?

The most reputable school in my opinion.

How was the admissions process?

Mine was quite quick as my program was starting, but they addressed any questions that came up.

What program did you choose and why?

I chose Community Support Worker-Social Services.

I have always wanted to work in this industry (making a difference for people). I tried to take this about 15 years ago, but I was a single mom and I just couldn’t make it work. Since then I have always been in the customer service industry.

What was the environment like during your time at Sprott Shaw College?

I am online but I love it.

If you could give advice to someone coming to Sprott Shaw, what would you say?

My best piece of advice is pay attention and take lots of notes. Ask questions if you don’t understand. This is only a temporary situation, so give it 100%.

Is there anything else you would like to share?

Being an older student, I had a lot of fears coming into this class, however, I absolutely love it. My instructor, Shirley, is AMAZING, and if you have her you will understand why. Sprott Shaw Abbotsford seems to always find ways to improve. Trust me, you won’t be unhappy.
