Planting the Seeds of Success
In 2013, NIC student Andrew Caulfield created a new kitchen herb garden for the Salvation Army's Evergreen House in Campbell River.
The garden was part of Andrew's work experience for the Employment Transition program, which has been helping students with cognitive disabilities for 20 years. Read the story in the Campbell River Mirror.
Prepare for Employment
Develop goals, work search and communication skills to prepare for employment and volunteer opportunities. You'll prepare a resumé, practice your interview skills, and learn more about expectations required in the workplace with NIC's Employment Transition program.
While most of NIC's Access for Students with Disabilities courses run between September and May, we begin our planning process each spring.
If you are interested in specific courses, contact an instructor as soon as possible. That way, we can assess your interests and attempt to develop courses and supports to meet your needs.
