DeNovo Program

DeNovo” means New and that’s just what this program is: a new start for students, particularly those who have come out of the lumber/mill industry or other sectors that are struggling. Graduates of this program are able to switch careers to something more service related or to another sector that can allow them to make use of their past experiences combined with current training to succeed in a new career path.

DeNovo is unique because of the three week skills training component and our ability to create customized cohorts. Examples of custom programs that are being delivered to classrooms across BC:

-A program in partnership with Northern Health to prepare students to work in housekeeping or in the food preparation. This program is being delivered in Terrace and Prince George BC, to start.

-A program in partnership with BC Corrections to get students the tools they need to do well in an interview to work with BC Corrections

-An 8 week program called Hire Ed which prepares students to go to university and college. It includes prep classes for understanding what it’s like to go to post secondary school, study techniques and a laptop kitted out with Microsoft Office. Successful completion gets students one semester of tuition and books paid for.

This program does not require approval by the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training. As such PTIB did not review this program.
