Learn new skills that current employers are expecting when it comes to being prepared to compete with other talent in the new emerging workforce. 

Our career support bootcamp will provide you with the inspiration, tools and opportunities to develop the pre-employment and job retention skills required to be successful at work. 

This is a six-week program, one afternoon per week. This goes over several job readiness skills with a special focus on vision loss.

It is not mandatory to attend each session in order however a lot of topics will build concepts from one session to another.

This is a free program hosted virtually through the internet and is open to any client in Ontario.
