Connecting Students To Industry
St. Clair College wants to do more to help its graduates find local work, through a new program called Genesis.
Director of Research and Development Scott O’Neil says it includes unveiling a new entrepreneurship centre at the school this January. The centre is expected to help students target training, mentoring, and networking opportunities, as well as provide assistance for those wishing to start their own business.
“Many students are studying vocational programs right now,” says O’Neil. “And while they’re getting great technical training, this is going to provide opportunity for those that want to start their own business upon graduation.”
Access to the centre will come at no extra costs to students, and is provided for any student in any program who’s looking to start their own business.
O’Neil adds that St. Clair College President John Strasser will be making additional announcements in the coming months, explaining how the school plans to further connect students and youth with local industry.
