NEADS' Vancouver Workshop for Career Centre Staff

Workshops for career centre staff on serving post-secondary students with disabilities

A practical workshop for career services staff is now being offered!

TD Logo

The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) conducted a needs assessment survey with career centre staff across Canada in December 2011. The purpose was to find out from career centre staff the types of training / resources that would help in delivering career services to post-secondary students with disabilities.

91% of survey respondents indicated they want a workshop on delivering career services to students with disabilities.

Thanks to the support of TD Bank, NEADS is offering a workshop for career centre staff in order to respond to the training needs identified in the survey.
