Adults who are thinking of earning credits or improving skills through education often think that their only option is to take a college or university level course. But what about starting off with a high school course?


Today’s high school curriculum addresses the Ministry of Education expectation of providing students with both theoretical and skills based knowledge.


Sarah Irwin, managing director of the Independent Learning Centre talks about how courses can easily be translated into real life examples. “For example, students taking the Business and Technological Communication (EBT40) course learn practical writing, communication, and technical skills that are needed in both workplace and post-secondary environments. And, taking that course at a distance has the added bonus of improving time and project management skills.”


Continuing education is not about going back to school; it is also about taking a giant leap forward and being rewarded with not only credentials, but also practical skills that can be used for immediate application and for years to come.
