You Put the Community in Our College
Every day, community partners throughout the region make our College strong. They hire Northern College students and grads and depend on them to succeed.
They take our placement students so that our learners can get much-needed on-the-job experience.
But more than all of this, they share our values of empowering learners to make our communities better. They are true partners in every sense of the word and we couldn’t do it without them.
If you are a community partners, we thank you for doing all of this. You make a big difference to so many. And you have shown us that you are truly a proud community partner.
As a veterinary practice owner and part-time instructor in the Veterinary Sciences department at Northern College, I am well aware of the challenges the College faces with securing placements for students which provide them with real life work experiences.
We have enjoyed hosting placement students at our practice over several years.
There is a sense of community good will or paying it forward in providing these opportunities for students that we are uniquely qualified to be able to offer.
Beyond the altruistic motive, we also find that the placement allows us to have an extended job interview with the students. This allows us to select those that best fit within our practice for future employment.
We are very proud and fortunate to have hired quality graduates from Northern College’s Veterinary Sciences programs over the years. In fact, we hired a graduate from their very first graduating class of Veterinary Assistants in 2004, Christine Barton, and she is still working successfully with us today!
