Social service professionals are able to apply their skills to a wide range of situations. Whether it’s helping families through a crisis or working with victims of trauma, their roles within society are very important.
The Social Services Worker Professional program at Vancouver Career College is designed to prepare graduates for positions throughout the community. Special attention is given to the specific needs of youth Aboriginals, and people affected by addiction, as these populations tend to be the most marginalized in society. Students will receive focused training on working with youth and those in recovery through practicum placements.
Upon graduation from the Social Services Worker Professional program, students will receive certifications in Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), Non-Violent Crisis Intervention (NVCI), Medication Administration for Support Workers, and three other certificates.
