The Importance of Learning Skills:
Student success in college requires well developed learning skills (such as being able to work independently, participate in a team, be well–organized, develop good work habits, and show initiative). These skills are as important as prior academic achievement. While it is expected that applicants would have developed these skills through previous education and life experiences, Seneca offers support to assist students with further development of these important skills. Seminars, workshops and tutoring are available at Seneca's Learning Centres.
As a graduate of College Opportunities, you’ll have the academic background, learning skills and career guidance to explore your further education options and/or employment opportunities in an area of interest to you. These may include vocational training/ employment in the following areas: social services, health care, apprenticeships, business, office administration, services to children and youth, recreation, employment and community services.
- Critically solve routine problems related to both educational and employment environments using a variety of systematic approaches, based on knowledge and consideration of diverse individuals, and fundamental concepts in social sciences.
- Perform basic job duties using appropriate equipment, technology, and software, including microcomputer applications.
- Contribute and maintain appropriate records, logs and reports by employing basic skills in mathematics and essential language tools.
- Work responsibly in a supervised environment and in accordance with appropriate practices and procedures, including the application of socially responsible interpersonal, communication, and self–management skills.
- Develop and use personal and professional strategies, including self–care and time management, to improve professional growth, job performance, work relationships, and career path development.
