Gain real-world experience
Taylor Pro College is committed to providing its students with all possible opportunities to enhance their learning experience. We strongly believe that practicum (unpaid work experience) placements benefit our students by providing a platform where learned theories can be applied in a real-work environment.
Through our industry connections, we have identified key employers who are willing to provide you with work experience that offers unique opportunities to expand your knowledge and develop your core employment skills in a real-work setting. While we are happy to provide you such opportunities for career and personal growth, we encourage you to play an active role to reap the maximum benefits from the practicum program.
Why get involved with a practicum program?
Through the practicum program, you will be able to develop practical skills that will complement your classroom learning. A boost in self-confidence, personal growth, enhanced communication, and organization skills are just some of the rewards you can obtain from this enriching experience.
The time you invest in a practicum program also allows you to connect with employers from various industries. This opens career paths that you may not have realized existed.
Who coordinates the practicum?
The student services coordinator will coordinate your practicum placement who will liaise with relevant employers in British Columbia to provide supervised work experience for students. If you wish to find a practicum site on your own, you must seek the approval of the student services coordinator before making any arrangements.
For more information regarding practicum arrangements, please consult with the student services coordinator.
Where are the practicum placements?
Taylor Pro College has developed and continuously seeks strong partnerships with reputable employers across various industries that recognize our high quality of education. These partners offer excellent learning opportunities for our students for practicum or volunteer work.
Once accepted to the practicum program, you may be assigned to any one of our many industry-leading practicum partners based on your program, personal suitability as determined by the partner and Taylor Pro College, and availability of placement slots.
