VALA offering academic upgrading


The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has opened doors for a local literacy program by providing locally-relevant, community-based solutions for targeted under-served and under-represented groups.

Academic upgrading offers an alternative option for individuals to upgrade their skills and receive a Grade 12 equivalency as required to enter college or apprenticeship programs.

The Valley Adult Learning Association, along with Confederation College in Thunder Bay, has formed a partnership to offer this unique opportunity for 10 local adults.

This program is assigned to help individuals reach their required credits in order to have access to college post-secondary or apprenticeship training for September, 2008.

It allows a person to work toward five credits to obtain a high school equivalency diploma.

Anyone interested in this opportunity can register with VALA by calling 274-3553.

Learning hours can be geared around your work and other activities, and no registration fee will be required. But due to space, only 10 participants can be accepted.

Don’t be overwhelmed with a lack of credits—start today and finish before September, 2008.

You will have access to one-on-one teaching experience with an instructor at your own pace. Make a change in your future today.
