Len­noxville Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Cen­tre

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Len­noxville Sher­brooke

Stu­dentsin the Pro­fes­sional Sales pro­gram at the Len­noxville Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Cen­tre (LVTC) have or­ga­nized a job fair. The event will take place Tues­day June 5, 2012 from 4pm to 8pm, at the Len­noxville Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Cen­tre, 1700 Col­lege, Sher­brooke.

In or­der to pre­pare for the event, stu­dents an­a­lyzed the mar­ket for job fairs in or­der to choose which busi­nesses they would ap­proach. This also al­lowed them to es­tab­lish a fee struc­ture for par­tic­i­pat­ing busi­nesses, which would help to make the event self-sup­port­ing. Stu­dents also de­vel­oped a mar­ket­ing plan in or­der to at­tract po­ten­tial job seek­ers.

This project has given stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity not only to learn the­o­ret­i­cal con­cepts of or­ga­niz­ing and mar­ket­ing an event, but also to put them into prac­tice. Time man­age­ment skills were put to the test as stu­dents learned how to or­ga­nize a large event.

Af­ter the ini­tial plan­ning, stu­dents con­tacted lo­cal busi­nesses to of­fer them the chance to par­tic­i­pate, both to fill cur­rent va­can­cies and to build a bank of fu­ture can­di­dates. The event will also give lo­cal em­ploy­ers a use­ful tool in their on­go­ing search for qual­i­fied per­son­nel.

The cen­tre of­fers nine ac­cred­ited pro­grams lead­ing to a Diploma of Vo­ca­tional Stud­ies, in­clud­ing: Ma­chin­ing Tech­niques, Weld­ing and Fit­ting, Ac­count­ing, Sec­re­tar­ial Stud­ies, Health As­sis­tance and Nurs­ing, As­sis­tance to Pa­tients in Health Fa­cil­i­ties, Home Care As­sis­tance, Pro­fes­sional Sales, and Rep­re­sen­ta­tion.

Stu­dents at the Len­noxville Vo­ca­tional Train­ing Cen­tre ben­e­fit from highly qual­i­fied bilin­gual teach­ers. The re­cently ren­o­vated cen­tre boasts mod­ern equip­ment and a cor­dial fam­ily at­mos­phere.
