  • Diploma in Educational Support

  • This part-time, online learning program has been designed to meet the needs of those who wish to pursue a career as an Educational Support/Assistant or are already working in the field and need to upgrade their qualifications. Although this program has undergone a name change from Educational Assistant to Educational Support, the program outcomes and career opportunities remain the same.

    The provincially-approved curriculum has been designed to develop the aptitudes, knowledge and skills EAs need to work with, and support children and youth with special needs during their educational experience. Through a carefully designed program of studies that combines theory and hands-on practice in school-based field placements, candidates prepare to work with teachers, and other professionals in meeting a wide-range of exceptional student needs.

    The program is equivalent to the two year, full-time Educational Support Diploma program offered at Mohawk and other community colleges. The part-time, online format enables you to learn at your own pace and continue current full-time employment.
