The Learning Commons is the centre of activity at Central. Students can access print material and on-line re-sources. The Learning Commons is also home to our Student Success Centre (Resource), Wellness Resources, and our career support (RAP, Work Experience, Career Talks).
Students interested in the Trades, the Registered Apprenticeship Program, or just earning credits while they work at their part-time job, can find all the necessary information through our Learning Leader, Ms. Hayward whose office is located in The Learning Commons. Ms. Hayward is the “head coach” for our Skills Team which competes every year in a competition designed around skills used in the Trades.
It is difficult to focus on learning if your stomach is grumbling. Through “Brown Bagging It”, our Student Success Centre is able to provide food to students in need of a lunch or a small snack. Any student in need of nutritional support is welcome to access this service during non-instructional times.
