Lennoxville Vocational Training Centre
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.
