Plans to graduate in 2020
A referral from Niagara Peninsula Aboriginal Area Management Board (NPAAMB) to Contact North | Contact Nord online learning centre in Brantford helped Arley Williams to enrol in Quinte Adult Education’s online Science course.
“I like doing online,” he shares about his first course. “Very convenient and I continue to work.” He works in a cigarette factory and wants a better job. Arley is starting to make a career change by completing his Ontario Secondary School Diploma. He needs to complete 3 credits, science, mathematics and English, and have his prior learning experience taken into consideration.
“Contact North is a big help,” he says. Staff at the online learning centre proctor his exams and offer encouragement. When he is having Internet issues at home, he goes to the local library with his laptop to complete coursework.
Once he graduates with his Ontario Secondary School Diploma in 2020, he plans to explore study options for a college program.
