Focused Educational Approach
Vancouver Career College programs and courses use a student-focused approach to learning. Class sizes are small, allowing for more interaction between students and instructors. Programs combine classroom based educational approaches with hands-on learning opportunities. Additionally, each Vancouver Career College campus is community-based, allowing students to live, study and work as close to their homes as possible.
Practicum Placement and Career Services
All Vancouver Career College programs include practicum placements that allow students to test their newly developed skills and knowledge in a job setting. Working in the field, under the supervision of an independent practicum host, practicum students learn to apply theory to practice, demonstrate their skill development and gain experience on the job.
Practicum placements may lead to permanent employment following the completion of the program or, in some cases, prior to graduation.
The Career Services department at Vancouver Career College is an excellent resource for those conducting job searches, offering résumé assistance, job postings and interview prep support to students, grads and alumni.
