In this era, the most powerful and distinguishing asset of every organization is its people. High returns on
investment are dependent on the actions of people. Success, then, is spelled k-n-o-w-l-e-d-g-e and management’s
critical role is to help its people become knowledgeable. That’s the difference between the best and the rest. No
amount of inert assets will be enough to offset the absence of knowledgeable, motivated people.
This five-module training program helps managers develop their people skills in order to build employees’
commitment to superior performance and productivity. The focus is on adding value, not activities. Participation

        Employment and Professional Development
 Education Assistant Certificate
 Helping school children - particularly those with disabilities - is a job guaranteed to present both significant
 challenges and enormous rewards. Under the supervision of teachers, Education Assistants perform a variety
 of para-professional duties in schools. Often they work closely with pupils struggling to overcome physical,
 learning, or emotional difficulties. Typical duties include coaching students in problem subjects, preparing
 specialized teaching materials, and maintaining progress records.

 You could qualify for this unique kind of employment by completing the Education Assistant Certificate
 program offered through Okanagan College.

 You’ll learn how schools are organized and administered and how Education Assistants fit into the mix
 of professionals, students, and parents. Among other theoretical and philosophical issues, you’ll examine
 such controversial topics as child discipline and public school legislation. Two courses focus exclusively
 on psychological and educational approaches relevant to exceptional children. Other courses cover the
 modification of curriculum for special students and the use of computers.

 Workshops will train you in the skills and techniques necessary to work with handicapped children and meet
 their recreational, leisure, and creative needs. The program concludes with a practicum.

 Admission Requirements:
 • Grade 12 (or equivalent) unless you are a mature student. Mature students are 19 years of age or older and
    have been out of high school for at least one year.
 • English 12 or Technical and Professional Communications 12 with a minimum grade of 60%
    (Communications 12 is not acceptable) or completion of the Language Proficiency Index (LPI) with a
    minimum score of 24/40 (Level 4)
 • Criminal record check
