November 13, 2020
North Island College is expanding their Employment Transition Grounds & Custodial Assistant program to their Campbell River campus. The 26-week program provides students with diverse learning needs the opportunity to learn the basics of grounds maintenance, horticulture, light cleaning, and custodial work. Students also participate in a work experience placement, enabling them to practice custodial or grounds maintenance duties. “It’s a program that’s aimed squarely at helping students put a solid floor beneath their feet, to have those core skills to work in the custodial or grounds maintenance sectors,” said Kathy O’Donnell, Chair of NIC’s Department of Accessible Learning.
