About

ADaPT is a work-integrated learning (WIL) program that bridges the gap between employer needs and graduate skills through 70+ hours of intensive training.

Since 2014, over 1000 participants have received training in digital and professional skills through ADaPT’s workshops. We have also helped match more than 89% of ADaPT participants with paid work placements.

ADaPT is facilitated by Toronto Metropolitan University's TRSM Diversity Institute and TECHNATION, external link, funded by the Government of Canada’s Future Skills Centre, external link.
