Educational Support – Student Testimonials

Return to Program Information

“In 2019 I enrolled in the Educational Support program offered by Mohawk College during the Covid-19 pandemic. Having two children doing online schooling at home, this allowed me to be able to both support my kids while being home and completing the program online. I found the delivery to be incredibly accommodating and flexible for a single parent juggling home and work life. The professors were all engaging, always able to provide sufficient support via email and/or online meetings over zoom. The assignments and workload were both reasonable and provided the knowledge that has become a huge benefit to me working as an Educational Assistant. The placement portion of the program was by far the most informative aspect of the program because you get hands on experience and a glimpse of what to expect working in the field. Field placement specialist, Stacey Money works with you to find the right placement based on your specific goals and was an invaluable advocate for me and my placement experience throughout the 2 years of the program.
With my Educational Support Diploma, I was able to apply to the Hamilton Wentworth School Board and have been working fulltime in the role since. This program provided me with valuable knowledge, ideas to use in my career and many new friends that have now become colleagues!”
