ILAC also offers ‘vocational programs + job’ which could be interesting for those wanting to study in English in Canada, or those who did not manage to receive a Working Holiday Permit.
We contacted ILAC with a few questions to find out more.
Could you tell us more about the ‘vocational program + work experience’?
ILAC International College offers young people from all around the world an opportunity to study and work in Canada.
The ILACIC vocational programs have been created to help young people to be prepared for the work place in English, to give them the keys to a successful career and learn about customer service, sales, event management, hospitality, business, marketing, business administration, and more recently in the field of health care administration.
Students are going to class during the first half of the program, while working at the same time if they wish to. The paid coop experience/work experience will be completed during the second half of the program (Placement service offered by ILAC International College)
Those programs, lasting from 26 weeks to 2 years are an excellent alternative to the WHV, or the perfect option for a gap year for anyone interested in going to Canada and having an international experience.
Who is this program for?
Anyone over 18, high school level minimum, wanting to spend more than 6 months in Canada.
This is the ideal option for anyone ready to start a Canadian experience and take a first step into the professional world, whatever background and profile they have! A strong motivation and an open mind are the best assets!
To apply, a minimum level of English is a must (equivalent to IELTS 4.0 to 5.0, B1/B2 depending on the programs). Extra fee for material will apply.
What is the cost of this program?
Price varies depending on the program, and ILAC offers extremely generous discounts for all European participants (between $4000 and $5000 discount). Here is the fee summary for 2021.
Where can you take this program?
In Toronto or Vancouver.
Important: during Covid-19 times, you will be able to take the theoretical part online from your home country (it gives you time to apply for your study permit !) or from another Canadian city like Montreal or Quebec city.
Could you tell us more about the ‘work experience’ part of the program?
ILAC International College team will guide and support you throughout the program to help secure your coop/work placement. You will receive job postings each week, get help to build your Résumé and your linked-In profile, to schedule job interviews. Our team will be there for you at each step and during your entire stay.
You will be placed in a field related to your program, for example front desk, tourism, hospitality, sales or health care administration. It all depends on the program you chose.
Program example: Let’s take for example the Sales & Marketing diploma program: 52 weeks at the school and 40 weeks of work experience (coop). During the study portion of the program, students are also allowed to work up to 20 hours per week.
