Every student can access friendly and meaningful academic support in our program classrooms and in our Learning Center. We engage students in a relaxed and positive manner to foster productivity and achievement. Collaborating with students, instructors, parents, and sending schools, we bolster students’ confidence and enthusiasm for the work at hand. From assignment completion to test preparation to supporting organization, we are always excited about helping our students succeed.
Technical Communications is an English class that is offered to students at the Hannaford Career Center who cannot otherwise fit in an English credit at their high school. The course provides students with the opportunity to closely examine their chosen fields of study, as well as the broader society in which they participate, through literature, non-fiction texts, study of the structure of the English language, and relevant writing assignments. Class activities and projects focus on helping students to develop career readiness skills, with a strong focus on effective reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Over the course of two semesters students will complete a career portfolio that they will be able to use as they continue to pursue their educational and career goals. Find the class website including the Hannaford Career Center Portfolio materials here.
ON THE JOB TRAINING: CO-OP
Cooperative Work Experience, commonly called Co-op, is a great resource available to all qualified Career Center students. Co-op is more than “just a job.” It allows you to evaluate what type of work you want to do, get real-world experience in the field you are studying, try out a variety of career interests, receive valuable training in technical skills, and learn the soft-skills required for successful employment.
Co-op experiences can be paid or unpaid and they can range in time from just a few hours to a long-term placement. They always look impressive on a resume!
