This Employment Ontario program, The Learning Connection, is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario and through the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement.
The Laurentian Learning Centre (LLC) was fully operational in January 2013. The building was renovated to accommodate a variety of Alternative Education Programs for school age and adult learners. The Near North District School Board made this a priority in 2012 to provide programs for At-Risk students and Early School Leavers to attain an OSSD or OSSC.
The Alternative Secondary Program has four teachers and accepts students between the ages of 16 and 19 years of age. These students are engaged in learning to meet their individual needs through a variety of experiences. We have a full functioning kitchen where foods courses are offered that can lead to Dual Credit pathways at Canadore College.
The LLC also has provided Continuing Education opportunities on individual basis for adult students in the North Bay, Sturgeon Falls, and Parry Sound and in partnership with First Nations in the Parry Sound region. We are planning on expansion of Alternative and Continuing Programs in the Almaguin region in the near future on approval of the NNDSB Senior Administration.
THE ADULT PROGRAMS INCLUDE:
The Access Program for learners 18+ with mental health or addiction issues and is in partnership with the North Bay Regional Health Centre.
The Learning Connection is an adult upgrading program in literacy and numeracy skills employs three teachers.
