Abdirahman is a multi-talented mature learner! He began working in our adult upgrading program. He studied mathematics in class to prepare for the welding curriculum. In April 2013, he was accepted into Welding at Its Best. Today, Abdirahman has completed the majority of his coursework and will graduate as a full apprentice in all areas April 22, 2014.  Abdirahman rejoins the program so that he can study for his upcoming final examinations. We wish Abdirahman the best of luck in class, the exams, and getting work. He is conscientious, works well with others, takes instructions, and has a super sense of humour!

Jeff is a real success story! He started in upgrading having less than 2 credits total from high school. He upgraded while looking after his first child. When she was older, he began upgrading as a full-time student. He completed his Grade 9/10 PLAR credits, started the credit program and never looked back. He will graduate this year. This is a very special year for Jeff – in December 2013, he welcomed his first son into the family. This has been a year of goal attainment in his family life and in his school career. We are all so proud of your achievements, Jeff!

Ashley Wyatt
Before I came to The Centre for Lifelong Learning, I really didn't believe that I would be able to do something like Child and Youth worker in a college. The people helped me to see what I could accomplish and achieve. I never thought that I could do certain subjects, either. The teachers at this school encourage us students to go for it! I talked with teachers about my not being able to do credit work. They interrupted me and said, "Ashley. You can do it." And I did the courses. And I will go to college!

The Centre for Lifelong Learning gave me the drive to do what I never thought I could do. Lambton called and offered me a position in their program. I've accepted it and begin classes September 2014!

Go to the Centre for Lifelong Learning. They'll accept you and they'll help you!
