What is the ADaPT Core Program?

The ADaPT Core program is designed to bridge the employment gap for post-secondary graduates and final-semester students. 

This is our main, recurring program where you will:

  • Receive training in the areas of digital literacy, communications, research, business financials and professional skills
  • Enhance your employment prospects through access to career support
  • Boost your self-confidence and learn how to navigate the hidden job market
  • Learn how to connect with top employers and like-minded peers to potentially land a paid job placement (employment is not guaranteed)
  • Option to choose a specialization and complete further training when program concludes (see more info below)

ADaPT currently has two modes of delivery:

  • Virtual Classroom (instructor-led):
    • Participants use Zoom, a video-conferencing tool, for live streamed workshops. Pre-work and post-work are required. 
    • Workshops are scheduled at specific times and you will be expected to be present (virtually), just like a class.
    • Workshops will be scheduled during 1 weekday evening and on Saturdays.
    • Participants will attend a career support session with our Career Counsellor.
  • Online (self-directed):  
    • Participants use online modules with comprehensive materials such as videos and practice exercises. 
    • Although you can work on the modules at your own pace, you’ll be expected to complete them by the deadlines given. 
    • Participants attend weekly Zoom meetings, facilitated by the ADaPT team, to check in with peers and solidify learning.

Please note, training delivery modes are chosen for participants at random.
