Keyin also excels in delivering a community-minded education that is balanced with activities in the local community. These activities are a regular part of our school year, and bring yet another layer of interaction that helps prepare our students for real world success.
At Keyin College, we work closely with our provincial government’s Department of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour to ensure that our curriculums meet or exceed their demanding standards. Our government-approved instructors also bring extensive industry experience to the teaching process, and our close relationships with the industries we support (including the mandatory work terms that our students must complete) ensure that our graduates are well prepared to step in and contribute from day one. In addition to this, the focus we place on the Keyin student experience helps prepare our graduates to become positive contributors to the workplaces in which they are employed.
Like many new experiences, career training brings its own challenges; adjusting to a new learning environment, establishing positive study habits, managing schedules, balancing home life, and balancing budgets to name a few. To ensure that every student has the support needed to work comfortably through all of this, Keyin provides the resources of Morneau Shepell (a recognized national student wellness organization). These resources are available to every student, every day of their training to help ensure that they can focus on building a better career and a better life for themselves and their families.
Keyin College was originally established in Newfoundland and Labrador in 1980, with the goal of providing career seekers with the practical skills they would need to succeed and flourish in a competitive job market. Over the ensuing decades, as additional campuses were added to better meet the needs of both urban and rural employers, our graduates became sought after across the province. Over what has now become four decades of academic excellence, the Keyin model of career training has been time tested and retested to ensure that our graduates continue to meet the needs and expectations of employers in the rapidly evolving work world around us.
Today, wth our 40th anniversary celebration upon us, Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest private college is well prepared to deliver career-focused graduates to the workforce, both in the province and beyond.
