PSW

In celebration of our convocation 2023, and the opportunity for us to finally be together and celebrate in person after three years, we asked our graduates to share their Anderson College experience.

Asking, “How has Anderson College changed your life?” prompted over a hundred submissions … this is one of those extraordinary student stories.

We hope this reflection moves you, as it has our Anderson family, and inspires you to ever embrace the career and life you imagine and, truly, deserve.

I considered going back to school because I did not have job security or satisfaction. I saw headlines in the news, and stories, about the shortage of staff in long-term care and I wanted to make a difference. I have a disabled mother and was recently working with children, so had experience working with the vulnerable.

Anderson College has a variety of professions to consider along with multiple options for taking and attending class, and convenient locations within the city and surrounding areas. I chose the Personal Support Worker program at Anderson College because there were various class times offered and the length of the program was reasonable.

“Anderson College is amazing! Staff members at every level and department were friendly, professional, and approachable.”

 

Anderson College is amazing! Staff members at every level and department were friendly, professional, and approachable. They assisted me with understanding documents, ensured all paperwork was returned by the deadline and filled out properly, and sent communications along with reminders. A community and close unit were fostered and formed within our class, because the teacher imparted the importance of, and passion for, our future field. The receptionist was always cheerful, helpful, caring, and able to direct a call or answer my many questions.

My teacher was highly knowledgeable and experienced. She combined theory along with applicable, hands-on lessons for maximum retention and affect. Each lesson was relevant, timely, and informative. Anderson College truly cares about its graduates. Follow-ups and check-ins were done to ask about program satisfaction, job recruitment, and overall wellness.

“I am honoured to have attended Anderson College and will always recommend this outstanding establishment to others seeking direction, fulfillment, and hope.”

 

I am confident that the training and teaching that was provided equipped me with the skillset that every employer requires. After successful completion of the in-class testing, I put my skills into practice during an extensive placement. I did not realize how profound it is to help with the daily activities of life for another; it means so much to the individual I am assisting, and their family members.

I am honoured to have attended Anderson College and will always recommend this outstanding establishment to others seeking direction, fulfillment, and hope. Anderson College offers and delivers every opportunity to succeed!!!
