Transitions to Employment at NorQuest College is a 10 month program that provides employment preparation to adults (18 yrs+) who have a documented mild cognitive delay/disability. This program combines an education in career management, human relations, financial literacy and recreation & community living along with volunteer activities, fieldtrips, and work experience placements. Through a combination of classroom, workplace, and essential skills training, students acquire marketable skills, training on current equipment, job safety practices, and increased self-confidence while receiving ongoing, intensive support and mentoring from College staff.
