SPELL
(Sector partnership for enhanced language learning)


 Enhanced English workplace communication is offered province-wide to Continuing Care Assistants in partnerships with long-term care organizations. Delivered online, the program develops speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills that are workplace specific and based on the Canadian Language Benchmarks. Role-play, class discussions, breakout room interactions, and individual assignments  sharpen and develop essential Canadian healthcare communication. Learners develop confidence, fluency, and awareness of verbal and non-verbal Canadian communication practices.
 
Four hours of learning are offered weekly over 20 weeks.
Study Groups provide practice for writing IELTS, LPN, CELBAN, and RN exams.
Workshops are hosted with industry sector presenters.
