Over 14 years ago, Skills for Change started offering professional development courses under the Tech@Skills (later simplified to TechSkills) program. It started with five computer courses, ranging from "A+ Certification" to "make your own website", on 10 donated Pentium 386 computers. By 2002, the curriculum expanded to 9 courses with up-to-date computers. In 2012, TechSkills becomes Career Skills with the mandate to build a profile as an organization that offers state-of-the-art professional development in a community setting by establishing a robust business model and actionable operational plan.
Career Skills has moved to semestered offerings, with our fall 2012 semester will starting October 13 with most courses running on Saturdays. Saturday mornings at Skills for Change will be unlike anything we've ever seen before.
You'll find courses and workshops that represent what Canadian employers are looking for when they hire and promote employees. In just one semester, you can significantly improve your competency in a recognized software, or acquire the knowledge that will take you to the next level. Career Skills courses and workshops also complement other types of career training and education, and are an excellent way to build your resume.
